In recent weeks, an investigation by Unified revealed that a number of Canterbury landlords have been luring students into exploitative sex-for-rent arrangements. The article explains how more than 10 landlords have admitted to taking women students as tenants – some of whom are international students – in exchange for regular sexual favours. UCASU condemns […]
On Wednesday 31 January 2018, Tomm Morton and UCA Students’ Union agreed to part ways by mutual agreement. The position will remain vacant throughout the remainder of the academic year, with Riley Clowes (Vice-President Kent) and Phill Dowler (Vice-President Surrey) handling Presidential duties. Students with enquiries should contact Riley or Phill in the first instance.

I am very sorry to have to inform you of the death of second-year UCA Canterbury Interior Architecture & Design student, Oluwaleke Adelaja. This news is very upsetting and I’d like to make sure you’re aware of the support that’s on offer during this difficult time. If you have been affected by the recent sad […]
An open letter in solidarity with Lily Madigan Since her election as Labour’s Rochester and Strood Women’s Officer on November 16th, one of our Rochester students, Lily Madigan, has been subjected to extremely negative press from several large news publications and public figures. She has been deliberately misgendered and criticised because she is a trans […]
This week’s by-elections for the roles of Campus Executive Officer and NUS delegate are now suspended, to be held again at the end of November. The nominations will not be re-opened, but voting will now instead take place 16th-17th November 2017. This means that campaigning is also suspended until that voting period opens again. This […]
This October, we’re electing 8 Campus Executive Officers and 2 NUS delegates. Voting for these is really important, because Campus Executive Officers campaign for issues you care about and work closely with the President/Vice-Presidents to make changes for students. NUS delegates represent UCA on a national level at NUS National Conference. Nominations open at 10am on […]
In October, we are hosting the annual by-election for eight part-time voluntary Campus Executive Officers and for our two NUS National Conference delegates. Previously we have elected NUS delegates in our main elections later in the year, but this year we will be electing them in October due to an earlier NUS conference date in […]
It’s elections season at UCASU! Hopefully by now you will already know about the new roles of President, Vice-President Kent, and Vice-President Surrey. These are the roles you voted for in the recent union referendum, and more info can be found about them on the nominations page. But why should you run to be President […]
What is the referendum? The current Campus Presidents have proposed that instead of electing four Presidents each year, we should elect one President and two Vice Presidents (one covering Kent and one covering Surrey). What is a President? A President is an elected position that exists to represent UCA students. You can run to be […]
Some of you guys might recognise me from around uni and freshers crew too, but I'm running for Rochester Campus Exec!
I've attended UCA for quite a few years now, as well as running and being part of Freshers Crew for the last 2 years, doing everything from helping people move in to halls, to organising and running events across Medway and Maidstone. I know a lot of you have spoken to me during this too!
If you could take a look at my manifesto that would be fab!
My main focus if elected would be to organise more events for Rochester campus, I'm actually already still working with the Student Union already to organise Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas/End of Year Events for this year, and if elected it just means I would be able to do even more for the uni and especially you guys, the students on into next year too, plus I will have graduated by then so have maximum time to put into the role! :)
As I stated last 2 years of freshers crew, my DMs are always open for anyone to slide into if you need to ask anything/have concerns/issues, and I do my absolute best to sort anything for you, so my other main goal if elected would to begin much more of an open forum between students and the union to address any issues anyone may have!
Voting is open on Campus between 24th-26th October
Thanks guys! #votePip ... See MoreSee Less
