About Student Societies

If you're interested in being designated a Student Society, you must meet the following prerequisites:

If you meet all of the above requirements, you may qualify for Student Society status with LUSU. If you are interested in learning what steps to take in order to become a Student Society, LUSU can help. In either case, contact us and we will do what we can to help you.

You should be aware that, if you are looking to become a Student Society, the process can take up to a whole academic year, depending on when you get started, how many students your society would end up representing, and your current relationship with your department, faculty, or program. In any case all referenda questions must be run through LUSU's elections process, even if they only affect a portion of students; please do not hold a vote on your own, as it will neither be enough to ensure you meet the requirements to become a society nor be enough to levy fees on your members.
