London Met's Students' Union is here to represent and support you throughout your time at university – it's also the place to go to get involved in student groups (sports clubs and societies).
What is the Students’ Union?
Students’ unions are separate from universities and are led by students for students. They exist to represent your needs and interests whilst you are studying whilst also providing lots of opportunities, activities and events to improve your time at university.
At London Met Students’ Union, there are many opportunities for you to meet new people, gain new skills and enjoy your time alongside your students.
Our Student Groups offer the chance to get involved with student-led activities on and off campus, and cover a variety of areas; from interest and community Societies to competitive Sports clubs, and hands-on experience through Verve Media.
The Students’ Union is led by our four full-time sabbatical officers and elected student representatives from each school, who represent the views and voices of the students here at London Met.
There’s lots more about the union but the best way to find out about it is to meet our officers or pop into our space at Holloway Campus or Aldgate Campus for a chat. We’re a friendly bunch.
Want to find out more about all the things you can get involved in? Head to our website or email us at: email@example.com.
A space for you
We have some really great spaces for you to use. The Students’ Union is located on both our Holloway and Aldgate campuses. The Harglenis building at Holloway is our main office, where you can come for free tea and coffee, use our microwaves, or have a go on our PlayStation 4. Our student receptionists can help with any queries you have, so come along and see what’s on offer.
Our Advice Service provides free, confidential and independent advice, support, and representation to all students on a range of university-related issues. This includes but is not limited to:
- Academic misconduct;
- Mitigating circumstances;
- Support at hearings and meetings;
- Problems with your course.
Change on campus
We want to have a positive impact on your time at London Met. To help us do this, we really want to hear what you have to say, so we have a number of ways that you can make your voice heard, including:
- Becoming a Student Rep;
- Taking part in student and officer meetings;
- Joining the Student Council;
- Standing for election to become one of our full-time sabbatical officers;
- Suggest a change on our Ideas Forum.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to create positive change, look no further! Head to our webpage for more information.
The London Met community is incredibly diverse, so we run a range of campaigns to reflect our student body. With campaigns such as Black History Month, Green Impact, and LGBTQIA+ History Month, we want to create a community where everyone feels valued and represented. If you’ve got an idea about a campaign you’d like to run, we want to hear about it.
Student Groups and opportunities
We know our students have a range of interests, so we want to make sure there’s something for everyone. We offer:
- Student-led sports and societies;
- Events and competitions including our annual Varsity;
- Verve Media, including student radio, magazine and TV.
You can find a list and join one of our current student groups on our website. If you can’t find a Student Group that’s right for you, you can team up with two interested students to start a new Student Group; growing and developing as a person by gaining skills in confidence, leadership, and decision making.
