UCA Students' Union (UCASU)

Students' Union, UCA Rochester

UCA's Students' Union is set up to represent the student body on any aspect of academic, welfare or social issues that may arise.

Each campus has a full-time sabbatical officer who ensures the student voice is always heard. With the other officers and SU team, this officer offers help and support throughout your time at UCA. From the moment you arrive you are part of the community and you'll find it hard not to join in. The student bar provides the focus to many activities. Even if you decide to opt out of membership of the SU (see Code of Practice for more details) you can still take part in everything - freshers' events, comedy nights, live music, fundraisers, film nights and quizzes. Christmas, Summer and Graduation Balls are always a big hit too.

The University has published a code of practice setting out how it ensures that the Students' Union operates in a fair and democratic manner and is accountable for its finances.
