Welcome Hub

Congratulations & Welcome to Imperial College Union

You’re now one of us! A community of all Imperial College London students connected by shared interests, spaces and experiences.

Together, we form a democratic charity - Imperial College Union - working to achieve the best Imperial experience for every student and helping every member realise their potential.

Read on for more about our Union. You'll learn even more when you get your Welcome Handbook on arrival on campus!

Your voice  

There are 18, 000+ students at Imperial and we often come together to tackle issues that affect some of us, or the entire student body.

We elect student leaders who take our collective concerns to College, or who lead the effort to tackle challenges ourselves.

Imperial College Union Officer Trustees: Alejandro (Deputy President Education), James (Deputy President Clubs & Societies), Claudia(Deputy President Finance & Services), Rob(President), and Becky (Deputy President Welfare)Your Officer Team: There are hundreds of positions across different areas of student life, but let's start with the five above - your Officer Team for 2019/20. They were elected in March and work full time at the Union with very specific areas of responsibility!

Your First Election: You'll get the chance to use your voice as soon as you arrive on campus. We're electing all our Academic and Wellbeing Reps in October during Autumn Elections. These Reps help ensure our teaching and support services are serving our needs as students.

Your extra-curricular activities

We run over 380 Clubs, Societies & Projects (CSPs). There's something for everyone and it's a fantastic way to meet new people, learn a skill, or simply have fun!

Pick a CSP from these categories:

  • Sport

  • Culture

  • Charity & Community

  • Arts & Media

  • Academic & Politics

  • Faith

Join a CSP at Welcome Fair 

Find the Club, Society or Project you wish to join at Welcome Fair on Tuesday 1 October. All CSPs will have stalls across South Kensington Campus and you'll be able to sign up, then try your hand at those activities the next day at our Wanna Go Wednesday event at the Union. We can't wait!
