Governance

Goldsmiths Students' Union is primarily a student-ran organisation and registered charity. One of the ways that we ensure the Union is being ran properly and independently is through a democratically elected Student Assembly and board of Trustees.

Goldsmiths Students' Union a democratic and charitable organisation that works independently from Goldsmiths, University of London to represent and support students. With four full-time officers that help steer the union as representatives and trustees, and numerous part-time representative positions that help direct how the SU is organised, we aim to be as democratic and student-led as we can. Each year, all of these positions are opened up for election, where any current student can run as a candidate and every current student can vote. By taking part in our elections, you play a role in choosing who leads the SU and its direction.

 

You can keep up with what your representatives are doing through, the Student Assembly. This is a meeting of the full-time and part-time officers to discuss their actions and current projects, as well as to vote on proposals and suggestions put forward by students. It is during these meetings that you as a student can bring about real change within your SU. Each year we also hold an Annual General Meeting to report on the work of the Students Union over the year. 

 

We aim to cater for every student. We’ve set up a vast range of campaigns, activities, volunteering projects and social events for you to get involved in!

 

Inside of the Students' Union building, known as the Tiananmen Building, you will find your four full-time officers, who are elected by Goldsmiths students to represent them. You will also find the SU supporting staff who oversee the operational aspects of the SU from day to day. This building also houses the Natura Cafe on the first floor, a vegetarian and ethical food outlet, and The Stretch, our nightclub and bar on the second floor.

 

Our Trustee Board oversees the running of the organisation to ensure we are legally compliant, financially responsible and in line with our vision and values.
