Elephant in the room Everyone has their own ‘Elephant in The Room’. This campaign was set up by members of the QMU’s Campaigns & Charities Committee to spread awareness and provide links between students and support services. Their aim is to tackle the stigma of mental health and raise awareness. They do this by providing links between support services and the student body.

 They also have run various successful events such as coffee mornings, documentary screenings and monthly creative art sessions. All of their events are held in the Queen Margaret Union.

SRC Student Networks The SRC have created five Student Networks to enable you to meet other students, share advice or organise meet-ups. You can use the Networks to fund out about relevant events or campaigns that you might want to get involved in. The SRC Student Networks are open to all University of Glasgow students whether full-time, part-time or distance learners. All of the Facebook Groups are “closed” which means no one can see that you are a member of the group unless they are also a member.

Home Students’ Network: for students who live “at home” and commute to University including mature students living in their own homes.


Postgraduate Students’ Network: for students enrolled in a postgraduate degree, whether taught or research.


Disabled Students’ Network: for students who define themselves as having a disability or who have a chronic/long-term physical or mental illness.


Student Carers’ Network: for students who provide emotional or practical support to a relative, friend, or someone else who is unable to manage alone.


Student Parents’ Network: for students who have children of any age.
