About Us

The best students’ association in Scotland!

Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) is the legal representative and charitable organisation for matriculated students of the University of Dundee.

About DUSA

Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) is #1 in Scotland for student experience. We are award winning for being safe and the best student value venue but more importantly, whatever you spend goes back into funding the huge number of student activities we run and support. As the legal and charitable organisation for matriculated students of the University of Dundee, we exist to serve our members – the students of the University. DUSA is run by eight student executive members who can be found every weekday between 11am-3pm at The Hive on level 4 of DUSA the Union. Working closely with the University to ensure you have the best possible experience, they are also responsible for the overall management and admin of DUSA, liaising with the University at every level, running campaigns, creating opportunities for you to become more involved with the academic community and much more. By helping you find private accommodation, funding your student societies and providing reasonably priced catering as well as hosting the safest and most affordable night out in the city, DUSA is here for you.
