Societies Council

The Societies Council is the opportunity for you to have your say on how the Students’ Union supports your societies.


Your opinions are essential for shaping how we work to support each other and enable societies to continue to grow and develop. It also brings different societies together to share ideas and work together.


Every society should be represented by at least one member at each council. All student society members are welcome and encouraged to attend.


When and where?

The Societies Council meets four times a year. Meetings will be held on Wednesday afternoons for two hours.


Council meetings will be held either digitally or in video conferencing rooms across the Ayr, Lanarkshire and Paisley campuses.


Specific details will be provided in advance of each meeting.


Societies Committee

Each year the Societies Council will elect a Societies Committee. The role of the Societies Committee is to:


  • Ensure the Students’ Union acts on ideas and issues raised at Council meetings
  • Help plan and coordinate society events
  • Approve any necessary society affiliation and funding decisions


This year's Societies Committee will be elected at the next Societies Council meeting.
