Welcome to your Students’ Union (SU). 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.
Here's what some of our students had to say about getting involved with the SU.
What is the SU for?
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:
- Promoting the interests and welfare of students and representing, supporting and advising students
- Being the recognised representative channel between students, the University and any other external bodies
- 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).
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 3 Full Time Officers and 8 Part-Time Officers are elected to represent you, understand any issues you have, and ensure your student experience is the very best. You too can make a difference by getting involved in one of our many Committees e.g. Executive Committee, RAG (Raise and Give) Committee, Green Committee, Student Council, or by becoming a School or Course Rep. Life and University is about trying new things, putting your head above the parapet, and developing yourself and who you are. Representing others is a great way of doing this and giving yourself skills for life.
2018-19 Impact Report
Each year, we take some time to reflect on everything we've acheived over the past months. Below is our latest Impact Report which showcases some of our main accomplishments.
How we are funded
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, such as The Hangar bar.
In addition we receive sponsorship support from a number of local businesses, including Tramps, Dominos and Cathedral Cars. The money they give helps us enhance your student experience.

Worcester Students’ Union (WSU) is committed to the provision of high quality services and acknowledges that, to ensure continued success, instances of dissatisfaction need, where possible, to be reported and addressed. If you have a concern about a particular aspect of the services provided by the Union, we would ask you in the first instance to raise the matter immediately with an appropriate member of staff. WSU acknowledges, however, that there are occasions when matters cannot be dealt with or resolved in this way or when a more formal, documented approach is appropriate. Should this situation arise please download and complete this form and follow the instructions on how to submit this to the Students' Union.
The complaint will be dealt with by the member of WSU’s management team who has direct responsibility for the service or issue about which the complaint is being made.
