Students Union

ULSU is the representative body for 13,500 UL students. Students automatically become members of the Union upon enrolment, and from that day on the three sabbatical officers (President, Welfare, Academic Officers) as well as the part-time members of the Union's Executive Committee, do their best to represent and help you with any problems you may have during your time in college. ULSU represents you both within and without the University, as well as providing you with services such as a fortnightly newspaper, welfare and academic advice, a common room, a games room, clubs and societies and much more.
