The University Secretary's Group (USG) is one of three administrative Support Groups in the University. USG exists to provide a wide range of high quality services in support of the University’s academic mission.

The University holds a TV licence which covers all University work premises for any equipment that can receive a TV signal. The licence does not cover accommodation buildings.

The University holds an Educational Recording Agency (ERA) licence that permits staff to record, for non-commercial educational purposes, broadcast output of ERA's Members.

The 1994 Education Act (Section 22) requires University Court, the governing body of the University, to ensure that the Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA) operates in a fair and democratic manner and is accountable for its finances.
