Your students union
Reading University Students' Union (RUSU) is an independent body run by students, for students, and provides facilities, entertainment and opportunities to help you make the most of your time at University.
RUSU is a fully-inclusive community and is led by five full-time student officers who are voted into office by students each year. The Union acts as a collective voice for all students on campus, representing their needs and desires.
As well as a democratically elected body, the Students' Union is also the name given to the buildings on Whiteknights campus housing the RUSU offices, shops, cafes, bar and nightclub.
RUSU is also home to the RUSU Advice Service: a free, independent and confidential service, open to all students. Whether you are an undergrad, postgrad, from the UK or overseas, straight out of college or returning to study, the RUSU Advice Service can provide advice on any academic, housing and money issues.
The Union is home to a wide range of societies and clubs, all of which are run voluntarily by students. There are currently over 150 societies and sports clubs, which all students are welcome to join.
If you are feeling homesick or just want to try something new these friendly groups are a great way for you to meet people, get involved and feel part of a community.
