SU Activities


Clubs are groups of students who share a passion for sport and come together to play friendlies, compete locally and nationally, or participate in socials.

Societies are the heart and soul of student life at LSE, and becoming a member is the best way to get more out of your time at university. We have more than 200 societies at LSESU, with thousands of students being members.

Find a society


We're led by Student Representatives (also known as the Executive Team) who ensure that you get the opportunity to make changes at LSE, LSESU and wider society.

You can start your own campaign, submit a Policy Proposal, represent your course as an Academic Rep, or even run to be one of our next leaders! The opportunities to have your voice heard are endless.If there’s something we haven’t covered or you would like to speak to one of our Representation team, contact!

SU Services


The Students’ Union Fund (SUF) is a pot of money made of £150,000 provided by a range of donors from LSE University. It was created in 2018 to enable LSE students to bring their ideas and initiatives to life, in order to positively impact the student community at LSE, and wider society.

Get funding


Our Advice Service provides free advice and support to LSE students on a range of academic and housing issues, and administers a series of hardship funds. Our independence from LSE means that we're impartial and free from a conflict of interest. You can also apply for Hardship, Childcare and Graduation Gown funding through our advice service.

Get support


At LSE and LSE Students’ Union we are committed to creating a safe and supportive community and tackling sexual violence. To help us do this, we launched Consent.Ed.

Consent.Ed is an educational programme that explores issues around consent, and provides an opportunity for us to discuss how we can look out for one another and create a respectful and inclusive campus.

We all benefit from learning more about what it means to seek and give consent, as well as how to safely intervene when a situation isn’t quite right. The sessions will empower you to become an active bystander and make positive decisions about your own relationships and interactions with others. You can book your training session online.
