Representing you

All the ways you're represented at UCL

Activities Representatives: Societies Reps and Sports Reps ensure that our Clubs and Societies members have their voices heard.

Club and Society Welfare Representatives: You will represent the welfare and wellbeing needs of students in the relevant societies which you are part of.

Volunteering Representatives: You will support the welfare and interests of students undertaking voluntary work through the Students’ Union.

Student Trustees: The Board of Trustees is the highest level of the governance structure in Students’ Union UCL. Trustees oversee the financial and legal decision-making within the organisation.

Your ideas

Help shape the world around you

The Union is led by students like you. It means you’ve got the power to change what the Union is, what it does and what it believes. Help shape it by submitting your ideas for change. 

Ideas can be submitted to one of 3 Union Zones: Activities, Education or Welfare & Community. A zone consists of a group of students who meet regularly and discusses student issues and ideas on related topics. We’ll help make your idea happen. If your idea affects multiple zones or you feel it should be discussed by all students, you may wish to consider calling for a referendum. 

UCL is your community, so you're in the best place to notice things that need to change.

Put your idea forward by launching a campaign.
