Welcome to Your Union!

We are all about the student experience so we know how important it is to have a place to relax and have fun while you're not in class.

We currently host venues in Paisley and Ayr which are great places to have fun and attend events with your friends or to make new ones.

We’re not-for-profit. That means every penny spent in our venues goes back into improving our services for students.
