St. George's Students' Union, University of London - is the legally recognised body of all students who study here. It represents students on all matters, with academic, social and welfare responsibilities. There is no charge for students to join, and the services offered by the Students’ Union include the School Shop, the Bookshop, the Bar, clubs and societies and the Robert Lowe Sports Centre.
SGSU is affiliated to NUS (National Union of Students) and ULU (University of London Union). The resources offered to us by the NUS include a vast wealth of information to legal advice, and discounts on services and in high street stores. ULU are able to offer additional clubs and societies that may not be offered here at St George's, and allows the more competitive students to play at higher levels.
SGSU is managed by the student Executive which is made up of elected officers, council and senate representatives. The Exec manages the running of all student activities, funds and manages the clubs and societies accounts. It meets fortnightly during term and all students are welcome to attend meetings.

St George's Students' Union are looking for external trustees! SGSU are completing the move to charity status this Easter, in line with the charity commissions new guidelines. This is a very exciting time for us as we will subsequently develop a separate trading arm for our commercial interests whilst also looking towards the future with a strategic plan that YOU could help shape. All of this will be achieved with the help of our new Commercial manager and the newly elected Trustee Board. This will consist of SGUL staff, students, externals and SU officers.
What is an external trustee?
External trustees are on the board to bring in different and fresh areas of expertise, whether this is finance, law, management or experience in higher education. It is a three year term with a minimum of 4 board meetings per year.
Why be an external trustee?
This is an incredible opportunity to help support the students union in achieving its aims, which are ultimately to improve the student experience at university and offer welfare, social and extra curricular support and opportunities.
