ZooSoc is here to cater for all of your Zoological wants and needs

ZooSoc is here to cater for all of your Zoological wants and needs. Every Thursday at 7pm we meet in the Boyd Orr Building and hold a talk for around an hour hosted by a new guest speaker every week. Talks cover a broad spectrum of Zoological, Marine and Freshwater Biology, conservation, environmental, and so many more topics. And we have speakers come from all over the UK and even abroad to expand your lovely minds. After every meeting we have cheese and wine (and beer) in the Zoology Museum, where you have the chance to talk to our guest speaker should you have any further questions, or you can just mingle, socialise and get pretty merry on the free wine! Following all that excitement it’s usual practice to head onto a bar for further drinks and a chance to get to know us rather attractive ZooSoc members that wee bit better.

PLEASE NOTE: You don’t need to be a Zoologist to join- all are welcome

We look forward to seeing your beautiful faces…

It is important that we know when someone is unhappy with a service they have received or the work that we do. Ideally we would like to resolve matters straight away on an informal basis, though we recognise that this is not always possible. Our complaints procedure sets out the mechanism for a formal complaint and can be downloaded here: GUSRC Complaints Procedure


Unacceptable Behaviour

We acknowledge that people from time to time find themselves in stressful or upsetting situations, and this can cause them to act out of character. In many cases, a service-user’s anger is directed not at GUSRC, but at the University, landlord, or other agency. However, in some cases students display unacceptable behaviour towards GUSRC staff or sabbatical officers. Our Unacceptable Behaviour policy sets out how we handle physical or verbal abuse as well as unreasonable demands.
