The Students Association represents a large number of students in the West of Scotland.

The New University has a wide range of courses and activities which can be studied/practiced across each of the campuses. Each of the Associations buildings, are quite new and a whopping £5 million pounds was spent on the new Paisley Union Building which opened in 2003.

The Association also has students who are part of the Crichton University Campus Students’ Association, as a large number of Students from UWS are at the special shared campus.

Each Student Union can arrange social events and other activities individually from each other, however the administration of the Students Association is done from the Paisley Campus.

Each Union also holds a Students Council meeting once a month during the academic year to discuss Association Policy and other issues which may have arisen.

The Association also has an Executive team of fourteen trustees, five of whom are sabbaticals.
