When you enrol on to a course, you automatically become a member of the UWL Students' Union.
As a student at University of West London, the students' union champions you so that your experience is the best it can be.
We are an independent organisation and we work with the University to ensure that you have the power to succeed. We also represent you nationally, and are affiliated to the National Union of Students. We've been voted as the best SU in the UK, according to the National Student Survey 2017.
Our main purpose is to represent individual students and the student body as a whole. We ensure the views of students are delivered to the university, government and other organisations that affect student life.
We also support the social and recreational side of student life.
As a student, you can:
- visit the union bar, which serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and is the main venue for entertainment and events
- get involved with a wide range of sports activities, such as football, netball, basketball, yoga, and use the gym
- join over 30 student-run special interest societies
- run for a representative position and vote in our elections
- buy an NUS extra discount card from nus.org.uk.
