As a student of University Centre Shrewsbury, you are automatically a member of Chester Students’ Union. The Students’ Union primary role is to represent students and their views to the University, as well as on a national level through affiliation with the National Union of Students (NUS). There are a number of elected student representatives who ensure each main body of students is fairly represented and have their say, both academically and socially.

The Students’ Union, who have an office based on the first floor of the Guildhall, supports students throughout their time at Shrewsbury and offers free, impartial and confidential advice and support. They are experienced in dealing with formal University procedures, housing and financial problems, and will always endeavour to get the best outcome for you. Other common enquiries relate to accommodation, wellbeing, student finance and general hardship.

We aim to enhance your student experience through social, sporting and non-sporting activities and through representation of all of our students – locally and nationally. All Students’ Union facilities are provided by the Chester Students’ Union, and are built on many years of providing a fantastic student experience.

The Students' Union is also where you'll find all kinds of societies for you to get involved in - whether you're looking to spend more time doing something you already enjoy, or try something new. Find out more about a few of the societies at Shrewsbury Students' Union in our blog.
