What is the student's union?
ULSU is the representative body of all UL students. Every student becomes a member once they enrol. The Union is run by students, is independent of the University and sits as a student voice at over 70 committees.
There are 3 full-time elected officers as well as approximately 60 members of Student Council who are backed up by a staff team to best represent your views and also to act as the government of the Union. Any student can become an Officer or Councillor.
Each class can elect one or more class reps whose job will be to liaise with lecturers, organise class activities and bring class concerns to others in the Union.
