The UCA Students’ Union (UCASU) is an organisation run by elected student members. The union works hard to represent the university community, as well as co-ordinating a timetable of events and activities throughout the academic year. With a lively social calendar and an on-site venue, UCA students can look forward to Freshers’ events, workshop activities, quiz nights, social meetups, and much more.
The Students’ Union team are a friendly and approachable first point of contact for any student who needs advice, guidance, or someone to talk with about a range of topics, from academic issues to personal support, accommodation advice, leadership opportunities, and even funding for creative projects.
Clubs and Societies
Social and recreational life is a large part of the university experience, and UCA has an active community of Clubs, Societies and Communities which bring plenty of opportunities for new and returning students to try something new. Students can learn a skill or develop an existing interest, while meeting like-minded individuals and making friends which often last a lifetime.
There is a wide range of sports clubs and special interest societies to choose from. The university offers everything from Rugby to Photography, Football to Life Drawing, Anime to Creative Writing. Students are also able to start a new society, with support from UCASU.
