Founded in 1909, the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union is the representative body for all University of Saskatchewan undergraduate, extension and certificate students. We are a non-profit corporation governed by an elected four-member student Executive and University Students’ Council.
Membership in the Students’ Union is compulsory for all full-time, part-time and off-campus undergraduate and certificate students, with student fees adjusted accordingly. The Students’ Union represents student concerns to the University, city, provincial and federal governments. If you believe student life could be improved, please stop by and talk to an Executive member.
As a member of the USSU you are entitled to take advantage of the Students’ Union’s many services. All students are also invited to attend the weekly University Students’ Council meetings.
If you have any questions or concerns about the University or are having problems in your academic or non-academic life, contact us.
How The Students’ Union Governs Student Affairs
USC is comprised of the Students’ Union Executive and Members of Students’ Council representing each college and an additional Councilor for colleges with more than 1,000 students enrolled. There are also seats for representatives for International and Indigenous students.
USC makes all major decisions for the Students’ Union. These decisions are then carried out by the Executive. The Executive members chair committees of USC, which include both Councilors and representatives appointed from the student body (Students-at-Large or SAL).
USC meetings are held weekly from September to April – all USSU members are welcome to attend. Meetings are held Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Roy Romanow Student Council Chamber, located on the main floor of Place Riel.
The Students’ Union also holds its Annual General Meeting in late November. This meeting gives students the opportunity to propose and vote on Bylaw amendments.
