As a London resident, you have many representatives:
- Ward Councillors
Ward Councillors are your most local representatives; you will have three Ward Councillors for the small geographical area you live in. You can see a list of the wards where our students live or explore a map of the ward boundaries.
- Members of the London Assembly
London Assembly members cover larger areas of the city, and are responsible for holding the Mayor of London to account on city-wide issues such as crime, transport and the environment.
- Members of the European Parliament
London's eight members of the EU Parliament
- Members of the UK Parliament
Members of Parliament (MPs) represent approximately 60,000 residents; a total of 650 MPs are elected to the House of Commons in Westminster.

Imperial College Union has begun a programme of engaging all of the representatives currently elected to cater for the needs of our students. A list of Ward Councillors who have 500+ students in their ward, and MPs with 1000+ students, has been drawn up and the current holders of the positions invited to meet the Sabbatical team of Imperial College Union.
