About the elections
Your student reps shape LSESU's work, influence LSE decision making 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 in October and during Lent Term in March.
