LSBSU (London South Bank Students Union) is a charity, independent of the University, set up for the sole benefit of London South Bank Students. Oversight and governance of all charities in the UK is undertaken by Trustees, at LSBSU their trustee board is made up of 4 x externals trustees; 4 x Sabbatical and; 4 x ordinary members/LSBU students. They are also a membership organisation that you become a part of for FREE when you enrolled with London South Bank University. Your membership also entitles you to access a range of services that they have on offer, usually at a discounted rate, such as Sports, Societies and other extra-curricular activities.
The union is a hub for a range of societies that cover cultural, political and social interests. Specialist staff at the Union can also advise on any course concerns and external matters their students experience.
It is also the main socialising space for students - a place for a drink and a chat with friends. The Venue, their bar based in the Students' Union, opens during the week between 12pm and 8pm and becomes a late-night venue at regular points in the year. It is also one of many catering outlets you'll find on campus.
The union is run very much for the benefit of their student body and is here to represent them from within the university. Recent LSBU graduates are voted in as student sabbatical officers to run its daily management and handle student concerns. The SU also plays a role in the university's governance, with Sabbatical Officers holding roles on their Board of Governors. Students can not only benefit from its services while they are here but automatically become members of the National Union of Students while they study.
