Students' Union

When you enrol at the University, you automatically become a member of the University of Westminster Students’ Union (UWSU) - an independent organisation that is run by students, for students.

The Students' Union is there to represent your needs as a student, protect your rights and make sure your voice is heard when key decisions are made at the University.

The Union is also home to a range of sports clubs and societies, as well as Smoke Media (Smoke magazine, Smoke Radio and Smoke TV). It boast a bar (the Undercroft) and nightclub (Area 51) in Harrow, and has two shops that stock various student essentials - one at our Harrow Campus and the other at our Cavendish Campus.

What's on at UWSU 

In additional to its work representing you, the Students' Union maintains a busy calendar of social and extracurricular activities and events, to make sure your time here is both productive and fun.

Visit UWSU's What's on page for the full calendar.

Over the first two weeks of the academic year, the Students' Union organises a raft of social events for new and returning students.
