UCSA Board

The University College Student Association

The UCSA is the University College Student Association. The purpose of the UCSA is to contribute to the non-academic life of UCU students. Members of the association not only benefit from the events and information but are crucial to the continual motion towards the association’s goals.

The UCSA operates through the running of Committees who carry out specific activities. For example, the Bar Committee is charged with the management of our very own UCSA Bar, the Politics Committee organizes lectures and excursions on political topics, the Humanitarian Committee raises funds for charity and the Music Committee organizes Open Mic nights in the bar and jam sessions. There are more than thirty such committees (also known as Co’s) which organize activities ranging from dance and drama to sports and career projects. All these activities are run by students for students on a purely nonprofit basis.

Activity is an integral part of life on campus, and every student has a chance to be involved from the moment they arrive! If a member feels that his or her extra-academic interests aren’t well represented by an existing group, he or she has the possibility of organizing and proposing a brand new committee.

The UCSA is the social side of campus life; it supports, facilitates, and develops students’ desires and interests.
