Aberystwyth University Centre

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 policies:

Tackling sexual assualt

We want to tackle sexual assualt across campus. This will involve improving the university complaints procedures so sexual assault is dealt with.

Better housing

We will campaign to ensure all students have affordable, liveable housing.

Ensure access to vaccines

Every student should have access to vaccines and they should not be disadvantaged by any access problems they may face.

Computer says no: The issues with vaccine passports and NHS IT systems (Briefing paper):

This paper looks at how issues with NHS IT systems logging vaccines has caused issues as the government rolls out vaccine passports. As a result we recommend scrapping vaccine passports and fixing NHS IT systems.
