About us:

Aberystwyth University Centre is situated on the Welsh coast in the seaside town of Aberystwyth. It is our first ever student society and was founded in 2021. Our aims include to run campaigns, research issues, lobby bodies such as the Student Union or the local council, work with other societies where we have common ground, organise events with guest speakers and run socials.

Our campaigns:

No more mould in student housing

No student should live in student or private accommodation with mould. It can become a serious health hazard and disrupt students. It’s why we will campaign for the university to introduce new measures for accommodation with mould and we will lobby the Senedd to improve rules on privately rented housing.

Keeping students safe

We will push for better university complaints procedures to deal with sexual assault cases and other complaints within the university properly. To do this we will be working with multiple political and campaigning societies to create a solution so that all complaints are dealt with properly.

Better mental health support

To achieve this we have two goals. The first is to campaign for better procedures to show what mental health support is available to students from the university. This will make it easier for students to access the services they need. The other goal is to push for counselling services for students whenever they need it.
