Heriot-Watt University Student Union

Heriot-Watt University Student Union is run by students, for students. It aims to promote, defend and extend students rights, provide advice and support, empower student social and voluntary activity as well as providing a range of services in an environment where individuals can feel safe and able to participate.

It is dedicated to ensuring that the student experience at Heriot-Watt is rewarding, and involves activities that are fun, while helping to develop a whole range of skills and abilities. The Student Union welcomes any student who wants to get involved, whether running events, counselling, campaigning or sound engineering. The list is endless: there is something in the Student Union for everyone.

Events & entertainment

Some of your most important experiences of University happen outside of study. At the Student Union you will find a full programme of weekly entertainments including live music, stand-up comedy, club nights and our infamous Monday night pub quiz.

Advice & support

The Student Union Advice and Support Centre provides support on all aspects of student life, including financial advice, counselling and advocacy throughout academic, disciplinary and financial issues.

Many people view their next four years at Heriot-Watt as the best years of their lives and we’re here to make sure you feel the same way by the time you leave.

Hello. We’re the Student Union at Heriot-Watt.

We’re here to help you love your time at Heriot-Watt. We do this by representing each and every one of our students. We’ll stand up for everyone, especially when there’s a problem.

Got an issue with course feedback? Buses not frequent enough? Halls not up to scratch? We can help with that.

We’ve got a whole bag of stuff to keep you entertained. As well as running the best events on campus, we have loads of different societies and our cafe & bar are the perfect places to chill out on campus. We also run the Student Shop in the University where you can top up on the essentials.

We don’t make a profit. Every penny you spend with us going straight back into Student Union services. So we can help more students love their time at Heriot-Watt!

We love to chat. Drop us a line or pop in for a blether.
