every KU student can attend our Student Council meetings, submit their ideas and participate in debates, but only Student Councillors have the real power to make your dreams into reality.
having a seat on Student Council puts you at the heart of the action at our Student Union, and means that the issues affecting you can be raised, heard and voted on. this is the place at uni where change happens and leaders are made.
we elect student council members early on in the uni year – more details of this will follow soon.
in the meantime, why not check out what your student council did last year by looking below or find out what policies are active and read up on what motions are and how you can submit them.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which resulted in the university campus being closed and the country going into lockdown, a Student Council meeting did not take place in April and was pushed back until May. Due to the restrictions, this meeting happened by correspendence.
No motions or items of discussion were submitted.
