An Active Student Life

A large part of the student experience is the social interaction and making friends. Our student community has continued to thrive during the most challenging of times, with thousands of students connecting through a range of events.

September 2021 saw the opening of our new Students’ Union within our brand new Learning and Teaching building. Led by elected student representatives, Strath Union offers a choice of sports clubs, societies, volunteering and job opportunities, advice and support, food and drink venues, space to socialise and much more.

The new building, in the heart of our city-centre campus, will bring the majority of our student support services, new students' union, as well as first-class teaching and learning facilities under one roof.

Highlights of the new building include:

  • student learning village (lecture theatres, study and social spaces)
  • brand new Students' Union
  • new location and facilities for Strathclyde Doctoral School
  • dedicated spaces for student support facilities (including wellbeing room, access, equality and inclusion, international student support team, careers and employability, and many more)

The Learning and Teaching building will focus on all aspects of the student journey - from your very first days with us through to supporting you after graduation and beyond.
