Edinburgh University Students’ Association is run by, and for, students, representing over 35,000 members. It is our job to ensure students feel supported and valued during their time at Edinburgh and to represent their needs to the University and beyond.

The students’ association provides opportunities for students to get advice, via our Advice Place, try new things, like joining a society or volunteering group, and make changes that benefit students and the community via our representation work. We have four historic venues around the city (Potterrow The Pleasance, King’s Buildings House and Teviot Row House), with great bars and cafes to get delicious food and drink, plus we host fantastic events and nights out all year round, including the famous weekly Big Cheese at Potterrow! Most importantly, we’re here to help make students time at Edinburgh the best it can possibly be.
