Welcome to the UCSU

Led by Students for Students

Welcome to UCSU, a student-led charity independent of the university, representing the views and interests of all the students at the University of Cumbria.

As soon as you start university, you automatically become a member of the SU. Each year, three full-time officers are elected to represent and support you during your studies. Whether you need study advice, are looking for new ways to make friends, or want to get involved and make a difference at Cumbria, the UCSU is here for you!

We're also affiliated with the National Union of Students (NUS) meaning you have a voice amongst thousands of students across the UK. Enact change, get involved, and find support with the UCSU.

The SU wants to ensure the campus is safe as possible, that's why we have issued a statement regarding the wearing of facemasks in and around campus. You can watch that here.
