About the elections
Your reps shape LSESU's work, influence LSE committees and impact your student experience. Running for a rep position is one of the best ways to have your say on how your Students' Union is run and create change at LSE - it's also a valuable source of professional work experience.
We run elections twice a year; during Michaelmas Term and during Lent Term.
Lent Term Elections 2022
We are electing a range of positions: from four full-time, paid Sabbatical Officer roles, to voluntary Part-Time Officer positions. We're also electing a range of committee and board positions, too.
