November Newcomers

So you’ve just arrived in Glasgow and you’re worried you’ve missed out on Freshers’ Week and all of the welcome activities… Well don’t worry November newcomers, as GUSRC and The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club have teamed up to bring you a great line-up of events and content to help you meet new people and learn all about life here at UofG!

Just Arrived? Welcome to Glasgow!

Who are we?

We’re the Students’ Representative Council, also known as the SRC. We do lots of things, but basically we exist to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable University experience by providing support, representation, and engagement opportunities. We’re a small organisation made up of our council of elected student representatives plus a small team of part-time and full-time staff. We are led by a team of sabbatical officers (pictured L-R): Amy (Vice President Student Activities), Liam (President), Ella (Vice President Student Support), and Grigoris (Vice President Education).

UofG Freshers’ Festival: EXPLAINED

The Freshers’ Festival is your chance to meet and sign up for over 100 of our fantastic student clubs and societies!

Usually this event (formerly the Freshers' Fair) takes place in the Main Building, and is one of the biggest events we run on campus during Freshers’ Week. This year due to COVID-19 we’ve had to approach this event differently and very carefully. Thanks to a lot of intense planning over a number of months and collaboration with staff all over the University, we’re confident we’ve come up with a fab system that will allow you to enjoy the experience of meeting clubs, societies and sports clubs, in a safe, risk-managed and enjoyable way.

UofG Freshers’ Week 2020 – It’s Happening!

We are so excited that Freshers' Week will be going ahead this year! The uncertain world we're living in does mean there will be some changes to how the week normally runs, however you can be sure that that GUSRC, plus the 3 other student bodies, will provide an accessible, exciting and most of all safe welcome to all new UofG students.

Black Lives Matter – University of Glasgow

To all University of Glasgow students,

We have all been watching the recent events unfold in America and seen the brutal killing of George Floyd coupled with centuries of systemic racism spark protests and demonstrations across the world, including here in Glasgow. More people are actively engaging with the Black Lives Matters movement and once again there have been reopened conversations about racism and anti-blackness. We want to reiterate that GUSRC stands in solidarity with those calling for equality and have actively voiced our support for those involved in the ongoing fight for equal rights both in America and globally, and will continue to do so
