Welcome to Roehampton UCU

UCU is the largest trade union and professional association in the world for academics, lecturers, researchers and academic-related staff. The union was formed in 2006 by the merger of two unions, AUT and NATFHE, and now represents over 120,000 members working in further and higher education across the UK.  For more information, visit the national UCU website.

Every member of the national union is also a member of their local UCU branch. The Roehampton branch are an active and committed branch who believe in fighting to ensure the interests of our members are well represented and protected. We currently support hundreds of members throughout the University across all academic departments and academic support services.

To contact the branch, email UCU@roehampton.ac.uk.
