Union of Jewish Students quits Camden for JW3 site

By Marcus Dysch, December 27, 2012

The Union of Jewish Students has agreed a deal to move its headquarters to the new Jewish Community Centre, JW3 in north London.

The student group will run its operations from offices on the first floor of the 10-storey residential tower at the JW3 site in Swiss Cottage.

UJS sold its offices in Camden Town earlier this month and has moved to Jewish Care’s Wohl Campus in Golders Green on a temporary basis until building work is completed at JW3 in spring 2013.

Union bosses said the move was part of a strategic review of how the organisation operates and that a wider restructuring process had been based on the results of last year’s national Jewish student survey.

UJS chief executive Daniel Marcus said: “We took the findings of the survey very seriously and have used them to inform the best way to provide services and resources to Jewish students.”

Mr Marcus will leave his role at the end of the current academic year. There will be no like-for-like replacement, but a new role of UJS executive director will be advertised next month.
