Welcome to your Students’ Union. The Students’ Union is an independent charity, devoted to the educational interests and welfare of all students studying at the University. Its members are all students (full-time and part-time) registered for a course of study with the University of Worcester, unless they specifically choose to opt out of membership.
Worcester Students' Union gained charitable status in December 2011. Our registered charity number is 1145192
Like other Students' Unions, our objects (what we're here for) are the advancement of education of students at the University for the public benefit by:
1. Promoting the interests and welfare of students and representing, supporting and advising students
2. Being the recognised representative channel between students, the University and any other external bodies
3. Providing social, culture, sporting and recreational activities and forums for discussions and debate for the personal development of students
Worcester Students' Union is affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS) and is supported by the NUS.
Located at the heart of the St John’s campus, the Students’ Union is the hub of student life. Our newly refurbished building is an ideal place to relax and chat; stock up on supplies from our campus shop or socialise over lunch. Our new bar and coffee house is a place for all students to meet with friends and enjoy a drink, play pool and watch the action on the big screens.
Our most important job as a Students’ Union is to represent your views, listen to what you’ve got to say and make sure it’s heard by the right people. Our nine executive officers are elected to represent student issues and ensure your student experience is the very best. You too can make a difference by getting involved in one of our many committees, or by becoming a Student Academic Representative (StAR). There’s so much going on at Worcester that you’re bound to find something you’re passionate about.
The activities and services we deliver are funded primarily through a block grant from the University of Worcester and through trading surpluses from commercial services. In addition we receive financial support from a number of local businesses. The money they give helps us enhance your student experience. To find out more about our partners click here.
