We Work For You

Birkbeck Students' Union is here for you. We are led by students, for students.

Everything we do at Birkbeck Students' Union is designed to improve your student experience one way or another. From encouraging you to self-organise, join Clubs & Societies and elect their committees, run events and set up campaigns, through to orchestrating a Freshers program that remembers that Birkbeck is home to a wide range of students with varying interests & calendars, to sitting on College committees to ensure that we are remembered and heard when decisions are made. All of this is co-ordinated by your Elected Officers & our small but dedicated staff team, on behalf of you, our members.

Each year, the Officers are elected on a manifesto of priorities for them to deliver while they're in office. Be sure to vote in the elections to make sure your Officers represent you! 

We seek student feedback regularly, to ensure that we're as representative as possible. 

We provide you with the resources and support you need to create your own community and make the most out of your time at Birkbeck. 

Some of the things we do:

Freshers & Orientation

Academic Offence Panels

College committees

Academic Reps

Help & Advice

Governance & Representation

Student Activities

All of the above takes preparation, commitment & passion from our staff & student officers. In additon to this, the Students' Union is incredibly appreciative of the hundreds of student voluntary hours our officers and helpers donate each year, as each of them plays a role in ensuring we are able to provide for students and grow to meet the changing needs of the Birkbeck population.

If you’d like information on any of the above, or how you can be involved, get in touch; it’s your Union.
