University Students'
Council of Western

To enhance the educational experience and quality of life for all undergraduates at Western University


About Us

The University Students’ Council (USC) is a student-led organization that first and foremost exists to advocate for and represent undergraduate students at Western University. Since 1965, we have grown beyond an advocacy organization, becoming one of the largest student governments in Canada and one of the largest not-for-profits in London. Each day, we work to support, improve and enhance your student experience, because we believe that students have the power to change the world.
