Students' Union

Worcester Students’ Union (SU) is the social heart of the University, with a huge range of clubs, societies and volunteering opportunities. 

The SU's elected officers champion the rights, welfare and diversity of Worcester students, speaking out on issues that really matter to them.

The SU is responsible for more than 70 clubs and societies, covering a wide range of interests and offering a fantastic way to get involved and meet other students who share your interests. From arts and culture to sport and recreation, there's something for everyone.

And the SU is at the heart of entertainment on campus. The Hangar SU bar is the place to go on campus to relax and rewind and also the venue for special events almost every week.
