Biographical / Historical

Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) is comprised of the Students' Representative Council (SRC), founded in 1884 by Robert Fitzroy Bell, the Edinburgh University Union (EUU), which was founded by the SRC in 1889, and the Edinburgh University Chambers Street Union. A later merger, in 1989, brought the Kings' Buildings Union into the Association.
