As the representational and corporate body of Birkbeck’s students, the union is a registered democratic charity that is legislated to promote your interests! With our members, we strive to be a union where individuals are supported, can build connections and communities, share experiences & skills, and have fun!
Run by students, for students, the BBKSU is led by our executive committee, who are elected by you in cross campus elections each year. Supported by a team of student & non student staff, student trustees, and elected student reps and council members, BBKSU seeks to provide opportunities, guidance and generally enhance your student experience while you study Birkbeck.
This is your union and there are a lot of ways to interact with us and get involved, including: joining any of our ever growing network of clubs, societies and student groups, attending social, academic, or democratic events, and running or commissioning campaigns to promote the interests of fellow students locally, regionally, or even nationally.
You can have your say in how BBKSU is run by standing for election to the Student Council and its Executive Committee, or by getting in touch with us. We want to hear your views, ideas and even your complaints(!) as our decisions, policies and actions are guided by our student members (that’s you!).
