Life Membership Sign-up

Purchasing a Life Membership entitles you to join a community that is rich in the tradition and excellence of the Union’s former members. It allows you to keep up-to-date with the current events at 32 University Avenue, and offers you the opportunity to re-invest in the Union, to ensure that the current members can enjoy similar experiences.

Life members receive a custom life membership card, and get to sign the Union’s life membership register, featuring many famous names of members across the last 100 years. They can also stand for election as Former Student Members, Vice-Presidents and Honorary Treasurer, contributing essential advice and skills to keep the Union running smoothly and acting as trustees of the charity.

 

If you’d like to sign up as a life member, please get in touch with the Honorary Secretary via honsec@guu.co.uk

Notable Alumni

Many GUU members have gone on to achieve great success in fields such as business, politics and journalism. Some of our notable former members include:

Nicola Sturgeon MSP

First Minister of Scotland

Former GUU Debater

"The standard of debate was always high, and stood me in good stead when I entered political life. The Union itself was the hub of university life, and like most students, I spent many enjoyable hours there. It played, and still plays, an intrinsic role in preparing young people for adult life."
