Welcome to the Virtual Union. In light of the impact of COVID-19 on our lives, your SU has moved online so we can keep bringing you fun, learning, and community no matter where you are. Communities, clubs and societies, and events are all here, just in a different way than you might be used to. You can join us for livestream events every week and check out the activity centre 24/7.

Here you can see all of our upcoming online events. To see more details about previous events (including videos) and introductions from some of our event leaders, visit the ‘Activity Centre’ tab.

Not all events on this calendar are provided by UCASU; we are sharing a wide range of activities and opportunities that we think might interest you within the local community as well.
