Societies are a great way for you to make friends and meet new people. They can also allow you to develop some of the skills that you have learned in your studies, and have a selection of societies and clubs you can get involved in.



Volunteering is a great way to help you make the most of your time at university, have some fun and develop your experience and skills!



Social Spaces


Our social spaces offer a different range of services deepending on your location of study.
Services include: Coffee, Bar, Food, Free Pool Tables, Games Consoles, Board Games and Night time Events.







Student Council is the decision making body of the Students’ Association of the University of the West of Scotland (SAUWS). It is the forum for UWS students to voice their concerns and where they can make decisions about the direction of the Students’ Association and the University.
