The Students' Union at UWE Bristol

The Students' Union at UWE are there to provide every student at UWE Bristol with a wide range of support, services and activities. They are there to give you opportunities, build your community and represent your voice during your time at university.


Sense of community is an important part of your time at UWE Bristol. There are over 30 student-led national, faith and identity societies for you to join in. With a wide range of events and activities, it's a great way of meeting people with the same interests or beliefs, and a way to learn about new cultures.


The Students' Union at UWE are here to create as many opportunities as possible for you during your studies, whether that’s helping you find a job or trying something new. There are many sports you can play competitively or start as a complete beginner, and our fantastic societies cover loads of different interests, from your academic interests to DJing and even dinosaurs! If you still can’t find the society you’re looking for you can start your own.


Every year The Students' Union elect a group of students, including an International Students’ Officer, to represent you in dealing with the issues that students face. Our Student Reps help you to speak up about your course, represent you academically and present your feedback on your course to the University.


The Students' Union can provide space for your activities, either in The Students’ Union building or elsewhere if needed. The accredited Advice Centre is there to help you with any course issues, accommodation problems or even legal advice. There are also a number of shops on Frenchay, Glenside and City Campus for your convenience. The bars can be great places to meet friends and socialise.
