Students' Union

Our Students' Union is key to a great student experience

South Bank Students’ Union (SBSU) is the center of student life on campus and home to a number of key services and activities designed to help you get the most out of your student experience.

Coming to university is about more than getting a degree, it’s a time for you to develop your passions and bring those dreams to life.

What's our role?

We represent LSBU students’ interests, provide advice and support and offer great opportunities to make friends, learn skills and make a difference. Our service includes support and guidance in areas such as Wellbeing and Academia.

Our Students’ Union exists to enhance your student experience and represent students’ academic interests, both on and off-campus, whilst you study with us. Supported by a team of staff, four full-time student representatives “sabbatical officers” work to represent student views, run campaigns, and speak up on your behalf, including holding roles on the University Board of Governors. Many students also volunteer part-time to act on behalf of students in many areas.

Why get involved?

Research shows that students at LSBU who get involved in co- and extracurricular activities are more likely to do well academically. That’s because we’re passionate about creating a positive community that offers fun events and activities where you can meet new people, as well as support your academic interests and well-being.

SBSU is a hub for a variety of student-led societies and clubs that cover a broad range of cultural, academic, and social interests, and if we don’t have the society you’re looking for, we’ll help you start it!

We also organise exciting events throughout the academic year, such as our Freshers Week, Union Awards, Quizzes, and other social events that you won’t want to miss out on.

At SBSU, our priority is you. This is why we’re happy to answer any of your questions via our social platforms, website, email, or come and visit our reception desk on campus in the Student Life Centre. We’re delighted to have you be a part of our growing community here at South Bank and can’t wait to see all the wonderful things you achieve during your university journey.
