We have a packed schedule of events planned for you all, so get involved. Keep us updated on social media via #StressReLeaf.

This is your chance to be part of the governing body at the heart of the SRC. Council is responsible for ensuring that the University of Glasgow is doing the best for the students. This is done in a number of ways, primarily through the University committee structure. The SRC have representatives on committees at all levels throughout the University, including two student representatives on Court and 12 representatives on the Council of Senate, which are the highest governing bodies in the University. All members of Council get the opportunity to run to sit on committees that may be of interest to them. It is at these meetings that members of Council are given insight into the running of the University, which may have been unfamiliar to them before, and where they get the chance to raise issues of interest and concern to students. A list of the 18 positions available can be found at the Autumn 2015 Elections page.
All halls residents should note that building and road works on and off campus will result in a restricted minibus service for a large part of the first semester. We will seek to maximise the number of minibus runs but during this period the service could be reduced by up to 30%. The unpredictability of the timing of the works has made it impossible to plan routes in advance; we cannot therefore confirm that we will be able to operate to currently published timetables.
