List of Over 60 Student Unions on Twitter

Lots of universities operate Twitter accounts (some listed here on Liz Azyan’s site), but what about the Student Unions?

I’ve long said that the Student Union (or Guild of Students) is a wonderful resource that’s often overlooked by students as just a group that sets up events and handles societies.  But a Student Union is so much more and it’s there for you!  It acts as a representative to all students, working on your behalf to get as much possible to help and support you as you study.

I’ve scoured the Twitterverse to find which Unions have Twitter accounts.  The list is below. They’re worth keeping an eye on as a quick way to stay up to date with events and news.

If I’m missing any that you know of (or run), let me know via Twitter (universityboy) and I’ll add it to the list.

  1. @Josh, many thanks. I’m looking to compile a list of Execs and the like who are on Twitter, as well as begin a list of representatives for all unis. Not sure how it’ll work out yet, but I’m working on it. Still, I’ve made sure to follow all your Twitter accounts now.

    @Phil, definitely shame on me. I silly oversight, since I’ve been following you at Liverpool for a while anyway! Thanks for the heads up, the list is sorted now.
