Once start Ulster University, you automatically become a member of the Ulster University Students’ Union (UUSU). The Union looks after your interests and is present across all campuses.
We organise social events, trips and activities to ensure you have an unforgettable experience at Ulster.
We represent the student population on every University committee, ensuring your voice is always heard on important matters such as teaching and facilities. We also recruit and run the academic rep system helping to communicate any issues or suggestions relating to your course. If you run for rep you can get involved in decisions and help influence change, giving a voice to your fellow students. We also have an elected student council which is your voice within your Union, to set our direction and campaign for the change you want to see on and off campus.
The Students’ Union is an important part of our student support network. The UUSU Advice Bureau is here for you to provide independent, confidential and impartial advice on a range of academic and welfare issues.
Whether you are interested in comic books, debating or politics we have over 90 clubs and societies for you to join. Want to give community radio a go? Do you have a passion for gaming, woodworking or want to be involved in Irish trad? There’s a club for that! If you can’t find a society for you, you can always set up your own. A great way to meet new people, have fun and try something new, joining clubs and societies are also a great way to get valuable experience and skills to enhance your CV.
