Your Students' Unions

Students’ unions are independent organisations that are there to represent students. All universities have them, and every student becomes a member when they start university.

At Greenwich, there are two unions to represent students. If you study at Greenwich and/or Avery Hill, you're represented by Greenwich Students' Union (GSU). If you study at Medway, you're represented by Greenwich and Kent Students' Unions (GKSU).

Greenwich Students' Union

We run various services, outlets and projects to support you during your time at University. We are not-for-profit, which means that money we make goes back into the Union to provide services and support for you.

You're represented mainly by four full-time Officers who work closely with the University to champion the student voice and ensure you're at the heart of all decisions made.

The services we offer include:

  • Sports clubs and Societies
  • Academic Communities where you can enhance your learning
  • Free, impartial and confidential Advice Service
  • Representation in Faculties
  • Great value outlets at Greenwich and Avery Hill for food, drink and entertainment

We can't wait to meet you!


GSU has two main goals: we want to empower students to change the world and have a great time at Greenwich!

We are here for our students and are always one stop or one step away from the help you need. Our GKSU Advice service offers independent advice to Greenwich and Kent students.

You will love your time at Medway with us. Through our range of sports and wellbeing programmes, social events, Give it A Go activities, societies and volunteering, we are your home away from home.
