Description:
The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) () is the national representative body for third-level students' unions in Ireland. The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) is the sole national representative body for students in Ireland but does not represent students from two of the seven Irish Universities, namely Dublin City University and University of Limerick and also Cork Institute of Technology. Founded in 1959, USI now represents more than 250,000 students in over forty colleges across the island of Ireland. The goal of the USI is to work for rights of students and a fair and equal third level education system in Ireland.

The Union's sovereign body is its Annual Congress, and its executive authority is its National Council, comprising representatives from each member organisation. Members of the Officer Board of USI serve a one year term beginning on July 1. The current President is Gary Redmond.

Many past officers of USI have gone on to prominent positions within Irish society. Past USI presidents includes Chief Justice John L. Murray (1966/67) and broadcaster Joe Duffy (1983-84).

In Northern Ireland, USI jointly operates NUS-USI with the National Union of Students of the United Kingdom, with students being members of both national unions.

USI is member of both European Students' Union and EURODOC and have provided officer-holders in both organisations.
