Queen Mary Students’ Union is a student-led organisation here to help and support you through your time at Uni. We’re a not-for-profit and separate from the University, which means alongside loads of fun activities, sports and events, we also represent you through our elected student reps.
The Students’ Union is responsible for supporting you during your time at University. It’s led by students across Queen Mary and ensures that the University and wider community are listening to what students want and works to improve students’ experience.
It also provides hundreds of opportunities and events for you to meet new people, spark new interests, gain new skills and enjoy memorable experiences on-campus, in London and beyond. Many of these activities take place in the Students' Union's on-campus spaces which include bars, cafes, a Sport and Fitness Centre and social spaces.
The Students' Union is also there to help you when you need support through its reps, Academic Advice Service and wellbeing campaigns.
There's no sign-up required, you're automatically a member as a student at Queen Mary.
