University College London Union

Access to Information

UCLU is the representative body for all students at UCL. We are a democratic, student-led organisation, run by UCL students whom you have had the chance to elect. Any member of UCLU is eligible to vote and to stand for an elected position.

We are an incorporated charity, independent from UCL, and exist to ensure that you are getting the most out of your time here and to represent your needs to UCL.

We provide students with a wide range of services to help you maximise your university experience – from relaxing with friends in our cafes and bars, or being involved in our huge range of clubs and societies, to going along to one of our events or activities, there are numerous ways to make the most of your time at university.

We hope that you are able to find information on UCLU via our website, but we would love to hear your feedback or to answer any questions you might have about our facilities and services.

We also hold several Members’ Meetings and many Forum meetings each term and we hope that you will come along to these, debate which policies we should enact and ask our Officers any questions you may have. 

If you would like to speak to an Officer in the meantime, our contact details can be found here – we are more than happy to provide our members with further information on UCLU.
