Wrexham Glyndwr Students’ Union is run by a team of 12 elected student officers. Every student automatically becomes a member of the union upon enrolling and has the right to vote and stand in student elections if they wish to. They are also granted access to all of the services provided by the SU.
The objective of the SU is to advance the education of students by:
Promoting the interests of students and acting as a channel between students and the university’s management. The SU executive team (through the UNITU platform) and volunteer course reps gather feedback from students and work with university management and course leaders to implement improvements students want to see.
The second is by promoting students’ welfare by providing free, confidential, and unbiased advice and guidance services. The Advice Centre offers support on a range of issues, from accommodation and financial issues to mental health and wellbeing. The team run several campaigns each year, highlighting important student issues. Previous campaigns have covered Period Poverty, Black Lives Matter, and Mental Health awareness.
The third is by providing social and recreational activities that supplement students’ education with personal development. The SU team currently oversees 27 sports clubs and societies which are open to all. The SU team also organise a number of social events, which are usually held in the SU bar, Glyn’s. These events include quiz nights, karaoke nights and themed parties.

There are two types of sports clubs offered at Glyndwr – competitive squads, who compete in BUCS leagues and the annual Varsity events against the University of Chester, and non-competitive clubs where students can play simply for the fun of it.
Societies include Christian Union, Criminology, Dinosaur, Dungeons & Dragons, Equestrian, Health & Wellbeing, Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, LGBT+, Metal, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Pokemon, Psychology, Re-enactment, Science, Sports, Coaching & Performance, Green Glyndwr, and Youth and Community.

Should students not see a sports club or society that appeals to them and would like to set up their own, the Students’ Union will support students with the resources they need to do so.
