We are YOUR Student Union.

Posted 4 Months Ago

You may have noticed some familiar faces on the walls around campus this week. These are all real students at Heriot-Watt… and, just like you, they are members of the Student Union.

“What has the Student Union actually done for me?” Oh, you’ve no idea how hearing that breaks our hearts. Because you’re a member, we want to look after you. Being a member means:

  • You can use all our services – the Shop, Geordies and Liberty’s, the Advice Hub… all there just for you.
  • We care about your wellbeing – so we bring you Alpacas to cuddle and organise talks and workshops to make you feel better.
  • We’ve got your backs – if you’re being treated unfairly, we’ll send in our troops.
  • We think you deserve the very best – from the push for more study space at all eateries to the new microwaves all over campus, we’re always looking for little ways to improve your uni life.

We are here for you. We are Your Student Union.
