The Student Services Council (SSC) supports and leads the activities and events of the Students' Association.

The subcommittees make up the bulk of the SSC. There are twelve subcommittees that all students are automatically a part of: the Charities Campaign, Union Debating Society, Design Team, Ents Crew, LGBT, Mermaids, Music is Love, STAR, On the Rocks Arts Festival and SVS. There is also the Postgraduate Society for all postgraduate students. These subcommittees have no membership fees and host events and activities that are welcome to all students. 

The head of each subcommittee sits on the SSC. The subcommittees are supported by the SSC External Funding Officer and the SSC Member without Portfolio. There are three Association Officers - Community Relations, Environment & Ethics, and LGBT - who sit on both the SRC and SSC. 

The Societies Officer also sits on the SSC and represents the view of the Societies Committee. The Societies Committee are in charge of administration for all 150+ affiliated societies.  

All four of the sabbatical officers are also members of both Students' Association Councils (SRC & SSC). All council meetings are managed by the Association Chair

Together, these student representatives work to organise and coordinate student events and activities to ensure that you get the most out of your Union. 

For a full list of of current members of the SSC please see 'Your Officers'.

The SSC runs according to rules set out in the Standing Orders of the Association. A summary of the the contemporary precedents and practices of the Association can be found in Precedents of the Association Councils.
