The University of South Wales Students' Union (USWSU) is a membership organisation for students, led by students. Our mission is to put students first. How we do this can be seen in our governance structures. Whether you want to find out more about what we do, want to get involved with us or help shape the student experience, you can contact us in a number of ways.
We are a democratic organisation separate to the University that is run by students, for students. Every year a team of Executive Officers are elected by the student body to represent and guide the Students’ Union. Representing three regions, (Newport, Cardiff and Pontypridd) the Executive Officers work together with a team of dedicated part-time Officers, staff and volunteers to make sure you get the most out of your education and student experience.
From activities, events and venues to volunteering and skill-development, we strive to make sure you have the chance to enrich every aspect of your student life. We support over 100 clubs, teams and societies, 700 SVR and Course Reps and annually hold over 150 events at our venues. So whether you want to develop your skills, become a representative on your course or socialise with friends, we’ve got it all. And because we’re for students, not for profit, we make sure every investment you make at your SU is put back into the things you care about most.
As the recognised voice of students at the University of South Wales, we support students that want to campaign on the issues you care about and ensure the student body – a collective voice of over 28,000 students is heard at the highest level. The Students’ Union is all about representing you, so if there’s something you need, we can help. Every student is a member of the Union, regardless of whether you are a full-time, part-time, undergrad or postgrad student, so if we aren’t currently providing something you’d like us to, drop in and talk to us.
