If you’re a student at UCL, you’re a member of the Union - it’s automatic. We’re separate from UCL, which means whatever happens, we’ve got your back. We’re only ever working for you. 

We have more than 260 different sports clubs and societies for you to join. These groups are run by students, supported by us. We run an advice service, with professionally trained staff who can advise you on issues like housing, money and problems on your course. If you want to discover London whilst giving your time to help life-changing charities, we can help you do it. We find students opportunities in London charities, and we also help you run your own charitable projects.

Over the past few years our campaigns have: fixed fees for international students (they now don’t rise every year), got proper staff contracts (with appropriate pay and conditions) for postgrads that teach, got rents in 90% of UCL halls reduced, and got commitment for an extra £140,000 of funding for student psychological services. 

We run cafes, bars, and a gym. We’re the place where more happens, and we’re here to help you do more at UCL.
