Your guide to the SU

By BzBarlow 21 May 2018

A great benefit to being a student at Heriot-Watt is the Student Union (HWUnion). Ran by students, for students, they organise events, offer support and want to make sure you have the BEST time here.

So, what else does HWUnion have?

Student Shop
Run out of milk? Need a snack between lectures? The Student Shop has groceries, stationery, toiletries, newspapers and all your Heriot-Watt merchandise. Find it in the Hugh Nisbet Building - right next to Elements and The Advice Hub.
Remember, anything you spend at the shop goes back to the Student Union to help pay for societies and the amazing Advice Hub.

The buzzing social hub of our Student Union! Enjoy a cheeky pint (from £2) or hang out in between lectures and grab a bite to eat. It also has...

  • Table football
  • 3 pool tables
  • Giant projector screen 
  • 4 plasma screens

Sunny outside? Take your drinks and chill on the patio! 

Looking for something more peaceful? Liberty's is the ideal place to chill and unwind. Fill up before lectures with our breakfast menu or else have a break during the day with a panini and Costa coffee. 
You can also pick up any Amazon parcels from the Amazon lockers here too!

The Advice Hub 
Here to help with any issues you may face during your time here, the Advice Hub provides free, impartial and confidential advice and support or if we can't help, put you in contact with someone who can.

We're open Monday - Friday (term-times)
Drop-in enquiries: 12:30pm-4pm
Appointments available: 10am-12pm
To make an appointment, please e-mail or phone 0131 451 4535

All societies are run through HWUnion too so if you want to get involved, let us know! You can keep up to date with us on Facebook
