About your Students’ Union Hi! We’re King’s College London Students’ Union (KCLSU). Together with our members we are a union of students where individuals connect, have fun, build communities, share experiences, and make change. We’re here to make sure that every King’s student has the best student experience possible. We’re run by students, for students. Our decisions, policies and what we do are decided by our 25,000 student members (that’s you!). You elect the Student Officers, Student Councillors and Student Reps you want representing you. As a democratic charity and membership organisation students lead us at every level. As well as empowering our students to share and use their voice, there’s loads of other ways you can get involved with your Students’ Union including: Impartial and confidential support from our Advice Service Joining one or more of the 300+ student-led activity groups, societies, or sports clubs Visiting a KCLSU Student Centre, available on every campus Discovering the Capital with our Unlocking London events Socialising in our two Students’ Union bars Making a difference through volunteering and fundraising Shaping your experience through Student Reps, Student Council and Student Officers Working for us as part of our Student Staff Team Read on for more on what we can do for you.
