About the Union

The Swinburne Student Union (SSU) is Swinburne’s only independent, student-run representation, welfare and events service.

We run fun and interesting events on all campuses throughout the year and campaigns to represent and protect students’ interests and rights.

We are based on Level 4 of the UN building at Hawthorn campus (above the bookshop).

Our members enjoy:

  • Discounts at local shops
  • Cheap entry to Union parties and events
  • Free breakfast Monday-Friday in the Hammer & Swine, Level 3 UN Building, Hawthorn Campus
  • Our student-run magazine “The Swine”

The Union’s Council is made up of representatives from a range of backgrounds and areas of the university. Find out more about your Union Reps here.
