As the representational and corporate body of Birkbeck’s students, the union is a registered democratic charity that is legislated to promote your interests! With our members, we strive to be a union where individuals are supported, can build connections and communities, share experiences & skills, and have fun!
Run by students, for students, BBKSU is led by our executive committee, who are elected by you in cross-campus elections each year. Supported by a team of student & non-student staff, student trustees, and elected course reps and parliament members, BBKSU seeks to provide opportunities, guidance and generally enhance your student experience while you study Birkbeck.

Everything we do at Birkbeck Students' Union is designed to improve your student experience one way or another.
From encouraging you to join Clubs & Societies and elect their committees, run events and set up campaigns, through to orchestrating a Welcome program that remembers that Birkbeck is home to a wide range of students with varying interests & calendars, to sitting on College committees to ensure that we are remembered and heard when decisions are made.
All of this is coordinated by your Elected Officers & our small but dedicated staff team, on behalf of you, our members.
You can have your say in how BBKSU is run by standing for elections , or by getting in touch with us.
We want to hear your views, ideas and even your complaints(!) as our decisions, policies and actions are guided by our student members (that’s you!).
