The Circle U. Student Union (CUSU)
The Circle U. Student Union (CUSU) consists of two elected student representatives from each member university. The representatives are called Student Ambassadors, and must be elected by a democratic body at their home university. The ambassador should be elected for at least one year if possible. In case of a vacancy, the local student representative body must appoint a new ambassador within one month. Membership is voluntary and decided upon at the local level.

The activities led by students appointed in different bodies in Circle U. are coordinated and followed up by the ambassadors.
