Supporting your Plymouth student experience

The University of Plymouth Students’ Union (UPSU) is an independent, democratically led charity that represents the needs of the students studying at the University of Plymouth.

Our purpose

We are here to support the wellbeing of every student studying with the University of Plymouth. We want to make sure you have a successful, fulfilling and rewarding time both at University and in the future. We do this through helping you: to be empowered, learn and grow; be socially fulfilled; feel more financially secure and know you are supported and cared for.

We represent your views in University decisions, as well as local and national topics. We campaign for you on issues you care about, as well as providing opportunities for you to meet new people, socialise, develop your skills, campaign for change and try something new.
