How to register a USWSU account!

As a student at the University of South Wales, you are automatically a member of the Students' Union. This gives you access to all of services including advice & support, our clubs and socities as well as the opportunity to shape the way the SU runs by getting involved with our democratic events! However, to be able to vote in the upcoming By-Elections you will need to register a USWSU account on our website that is linked to your student ID/email address.

Registering for an account is easy, all you need to do is follow these instructions.
1.    Go to and click the 'Log In' button in the top right corner. 
2.    Click register, and follow the buttons to register as a student. 
3.    Fill in your details, making sure to use your student ID and not your personal email. 
4.    Wait for the registration link to be sent to your email, click the link and you are all set! 

Once you have done that, you should have no issues with standing or voting in any upcoming elections. However, if an error does occur, contact who can provide further assistance. 

It's important that you have registered an account with us to use your vote in the elections! Your vote matters and helps shape your university experience as well as that of other students. In the past, we've been able to lobby the University to introduce Lecture Recording and keep Wednesday afternoons free for extra-curricular activities - none of which would've been possible without the backing of the student body.

Don't forget that nominations for the By-Elections are open until the 28th April and YOU could be the perfect candidate for one of our roles - head to the elections page to find out more.
