RGU: Union is the RGU's Student Association. The Union is here to represent all RGU Students and make your student life at RGU the best it can be!

One of the key areas they are working on is being your voice at RGU. The union is run by a team of elected Presidents who were voted into office by you to represent your voice and work on projects to support you. If there is anything you would like to see changed at RGU, then get in touch with your elected officers, as it is your voice that will make a difference.

RGU: Union also provides a range of opportunities for you to get involved in, such as societies, sports clubs, student media, volunteering, charity fundraising and so much more. They also have services such as advice and support teams, RGU Go Green, RGU Nightline, and Deeview Student Shop. RGU: Union has so much for students to get involved in, so they encourage you to get in touch, find out more, and make the most of it.

There is a wide variety of sports clubs and societies that you can get involved with.

Joining a club or society is an ideal way to meet new friends and develop skills that will enhance your CV. If there is an activity that you are interested in but it is not represented, we will help you to set up a club or society.
