Reading University Students’ Union (RUSU) is an independent charity based on the Whiteknights campus that exists to represent, support and provide opportunities for all students studying at the University of Reading.
As a student at Reading, you are automatically a member of RUSU. Find out more.
RUSU has a professional Advice Service open to all students. Our service is free, independent and confidential and supports students through a range of issues they may face whilst at University, such a money, housing or academic issues.
If you want to play at your own pace then there are clubs that offer social sports, where you can simply show up and take part casually. Looking for a little more competition? National university leagues allow you to compete against other universities – game on!
Our volunteering programs are student-led, meaning you can decide which cause you’d like to help, from providing support to the university, other students, or the community. No matter how long you’re able to help out on a volunteer programme, your contribution will be invaluable.
With over 130 societies, there's a society for everyone. Societies can be formed from academic courses, culture, hobbies and so on. They’re also a great way of meeting people whilst getting involved in something exciting, so don't be afraid to get stuck in.
There are three media streams available for you to get involved with at RUSU; The Spark (newspaper), Junction 11 (radio) and RUON:TV (TV). You may not have considered speaking on air or hosting a student political debate, but through RUSU’s Media groups we’ll help you develop in ways you haven’t even imagined.
