Ulster University Students’ Union (UUSU) is a not for profit, charitable membership organisation which was formed in 1984 as an independent body to Ulster University. UUSU currently represents approximately 25,000 student members and provides a vast range of services for members including academic representation, welfare advice, volunteering opportunities and enhancement of the student experience through events, activities, clubs, societies and change programmes. Each year the student membership elects seven student officers to represent them, each of whom are closely supported by around 30 staff across the Belfast, Coleraine, Jordanstown and Magee campuses.
