UOGSU is a student-led, fully registered charity with a mission to improve the lives of students at UOG by providing a range of services, support and opportunities. Your Student’s Union is here for you to give you a life enhancing student experience no matter what course you study. As a student of UoG, you automatically become a member of the SU.

Through the SU, you can join a society or sports club, get support through our advice service, attend events, use our shops and bars and become a representative for other students. The SU is run by 3 elected Full Time Officers who are supported by permanent staff members and student staff members. 

As a registered charity we have clear aims:

  • To promote the interests and welfare of our students
  • To be the representative body of our students
  • To provide activities and opportunities for our students
