Who are we?
We are the constituted coordinating body for all student sport at the University of Strathclyde. The most important factor of the Sports Union is that it is run by students for students. Through a system of democratic committees each member has a voice as to how decisions are made. The Sports President is elected each year from the student body for a one year full time (paid) position and is assisted by the Sports Executive Committee.
The University of Strathclyde Sports Union was founded in 1921 as the Royal Technical College Athletic Club. Over the years there have been numerous changes to the name and structure, but we officially became part of the Students’ Association in 1989 when the merger of the two bodies created our current structure.
The Sports President is elected each year from the student body for a one year full time (paid) position and is assisted by the Sports Executive, made up of 12 elected students democratically elected at the Annual General Meeting. Would you like to be part of the team? Read more on our group of volunteers and how to get involved.
The Sports Union work closely with several individuals and departments within the University, such as the Centre for Sport and Recreation (CSR), to ensure the best experience and facilities for our members. Externally, we are members of and have representation within Scottish Student Sport (SSS) and British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) securing competitive opportunities and representation at all levels.

The Constitution is the governing document of the Sports Union. As such, it rules what can and cannot happen in the Sports Union. As well as this, it gives us our legal status and structures along with all the committee groups and disciplinary procedures. The Constitution (along with everything else in the Sports Union) is owned by our members. READ MORE
