St. Paul's University Student Association, SPUSA, is the organisation that represents the students interests. The aim is to provide a body that students can identify with, feel a commitment to and be proud of.
The Executive Committee is comprised of the Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary, Vice Secretary, Treasurer, plus not more than two co-opted members of its governing body. The Executive is the channel of communication when students deal with the University Management, although departmental issues can be taken up directly by representatives of departments with the appropriate University officer.
