Administrative history

The Students' Association of the University of Strathclyde was formed in 1964 from the amalgamation of the Students' Association of the Royal College of Science and Technology with the Students' Representative Council of the Scottish College of Commerce.

The purpose of the Association was to promote the general interests of the students, be the recognised channel of communication between the students, University authorities and other organisations, and run the Union building in John Street as a club for its members. The Association had representation on the University Court and Senate, the University Management Committee and other committees. Student office-bearers were elected annually by the student body. In addition to this formal representation of the students' interests, the Association organised student activities and social events, encouraged student societies and debates and published the student newspaper, 'The Strathclyde Telegraph'.
