What's USSA all about?
In a nutshell, the University of Strathclyde Students' Association (USSA) is an organisation dedicated to representing the needs of the 22,000 students here at Strathclyde. We provide support, advice and representation when you need it; we give you bars, catering & entertainment when you want them; we help you run your own societies, sports clubs and volunteering activites the way you want to; and we constantly campaign on your behalf, even when you don't realise it.
