Our Mission

Welcome to UCLan Students’ Union

It’s our job to make your University experience the best it can be, and we work hard to make life better for all students. Once you enrol onto a UCLan course, you automatically become a member of the Union. It’s completely free and accessible to everyone. Whether you’re looking for advice, want to get involved or you just fancy a coffee and some great food, we’re here for you.

So what makes our Students’ Union so great? It’s led by students elected by you, which means we always have your priorities and interests at heart. Tell us what is important to you, so that together we can campaign to change things on campus, on your course and in the community. There’s so many opportunities to take part, boost your skills and make new friends. Join one of our clubs or societies, work towards the Livesey Award with our volunteering projects or represent students on your course as part of our Rep team.

You’re One Of Us now!

Your Elected Officers

Zuleikha - Union President

Welcome to all our new students and welcome back to those of you who are returning to your studies. I’m your Students’ Union President and I’m here to represent all students and help you get the best student experience possible. We look forward to welcoming you for Freshers and getting involved exploring new opportunities throughout the year. I hope to meet as many of you as possible during Freshers week and throughout the year ahead. Myself and the officer team want to support you through your entire time at University to make sure you’re equipped to meet the challenges ahead, and most importantly enjoy your time here!

Steph - Education

Hello! I am so excited you have chosen to join the UCLan Fam! My name is Steph, I’m your VP Education and my job is to make sure that you have the best time academically at UCLan! Welcome is an exciting time to get your teeth into a subject you are passionate about! Make sure to attend online or offline events to make the most of your journey and should you ever need us, we are here for you!

Megan- Welfare

Hey, I’m Meg and it’s lovely to (virtually) meet you all 😊 I’m really excited for the next year, we’ve got loads coming up for you guys! My role is helping students with all things relating to health (both physical and mental) and overall well-being – so some of the exciting events I’m currently working on include pride and university mental health day 😊 My favourite thing about welcome is trying things I’ve never done before, and meeting loads of new people! My best advice for welcome is to try not to worry, you will still have an amazing experience and make loads of new friends despite everything going on – we are working really hard to make sure you don’t miss out 😊

Sophie - Activities

Oh hello, fancy seeing you here! Massive welcome to our 2020 Freshers- it’s a pleasure to have you, and welcome home to our Red and Black Army! We’re here to make sure you have the absolute best time at uni but you can get started yourself by checking out all our Sports, Socs and Volunteering Opps and if you need ANYTHING just get in touch!
