Students' Union

Students socialising outside of the Union's entrance.

Our mission is to ensure that all students are happy, healthy and empowered.

Led by students and supported by a team of staff... be part of an exceptional student experience; a life-changing journey; with lasting friendships and preparation for anything leading to a successful and promising future.

As a Students’ Union we are committed to:

  • Preparing students for their next adventure
  • Always giving students the last word
  • Helping students to be as happy and healthy as possible
  • Growing together with students as an Aber family


These promises are fulfilled by providing students with a range of benefits and opportunities to get involved in, including:

  • Helping students to meet new people, make friends and build communities
  • 130 student Sport Clubs and Societies - including a PG Students Association, academic societies and a chance to start your own group
  • Supporting, training and working with over 300 Academic Reps to have a positive impact for students at course level
  • Free, impartial, friendly and confidential advice
  • A representative voice for all Aberystwyth University students
  • Opportunities for students to campaign on the issues they care about
  • Spaces to study, meet and socialise


The Union team also offer independent support and representation, whether academic, welfare or financial, for students who find they may need a little extra support while at University.
