UCS Union is the newest university students’ union in the UK, having been formed in August 2007. The Union is based in Ipswich but represents and supports students at the five UCS campuses in Bury St. Edmunds, Great Yarmouth, Ipswich, Lowestoft and Otley. Despite this lack of a long history, the Union is at the centre of any UCS plans relating to students and the services, facilities and support provided to them. The Union operates a brand new café, Theta, where students can relax in comfortable surroundings on the Ipswich campus.Theta overlooks the marina and are busy hubs on campus. In addition, the Union’s clubs and societies have secured access to many of the top sports and social facilities around Ipswich town, meaning there’s always something to do!
