Service update 

Due to COVID-19, the Volunteering Service is operating remotely and is contactable via email only. The University and Students’ Association have adapted our approach to teaching, events and activities to ensure the safety of staff, students and visitors.


Please note that Volunteering Service webpages are currently undergoing updates.


The Volunteering Service provides Third Sector organisations with the opportunity to work with students who are eager to take on volunteering opportunities in a range of disciplines. With over 41,000 students at the University of Edinburgh, our student volunteers offer a wealth of skills and perspectives and are eager to take on activities in a range of disciplines.

We provide a number of services to help connect you with our students, including a volunteering brokerage service, the opportunity to host a one-off project with a team of student volunteers, connect with our student-led societies and projects, meet our students at our Third-Sector Careers Fair and an opportunity to recognise the work student volunteers do and help them to have their volunteering recognised by the University.
