One of the most important roles of a students’ union is being a tool for you to change the world around you. It’s our job to help empower you to improve your time at UCL. That might be by asking for changes to be made on your course or by challenging the realities that you see around you. It can even mean tackling bigger, national issues that you believe in.

We have a team of staff and sabbatical officers who can help you set the ball rolling. But we also have a number of campaigns that we are already working on with other students. Take a look at our current campaigns and how they are making an impact at UCL. You’ll also be able to find information on how you can add your voice to the cause and get involved.

BME students are driving a campaign to end institutional racism and truly diversify UCL. The campaign is gather pace - find out how we’re planning to make an impact and how you can get involved.
