Student Representation & Participation

Western Sydney University student representation aims to invigorate the student body at the University. Each representative is a student from a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures and areas of study.

Student Representation & Participation (SRP) supports student representative structures within Western Sydney University including:

This support includes strategic advice, financial oversight and facilitation of the student voice. Please note SRP are a small group of University staff who support the activities of the groups listed. SRP staff members do not hold positions on these councils – the councils are an independent student body.

How does the SRP model work?

Whilst Student Representation & Participation at Western Sydney University exists in numerous areas including student representation on academic committees, the Board of Trustees, and other Western Sydney University bodies, the SRP model can be best described as a new model which replaced the former Students' Association or Student Union. The SRP model is established under a Western Sydney University policy and underlying Procedures.

What can representatives help me with?

From food prices and parking, to academic teaching quality and student services, to clubs, societies and campus life, the student reps on your campus will be able to listen and help you to better life at the University for students. If you have an issue for which you wish to seek support for, please visit the SRC website (opens in a new window) or visit one of our offices below.
