'Liberation is the act of working to challenge and reverse the effects of structural oppression in society.' 

At Goldsmiths SU, we support five liberation networks, bringing together BME (black and minority ethnic), women, LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer +), trans and non-binary people, and disabled students, to meet others, build networks and work on issues, campaigns and plans.

Five Liberation Officers - one for each group - are elected each year, and they help to support and represent these groups within the Union and College. They are: 

  • Disabled Students' Officer
  • LGBTQ+ Officer
  • Trans and Non-Binary Officer
  • BME Officer
  • Women's Officer

 

The Liberation Room 

The Liberation Room, below, is available for small liberation group activities and informal groups of minority students. You will need to make a booking via this form in advance. 

 

 

 

We also have a room, downstairs in the SU, containing two beds. If you’re around campus all day and need a nap, especially those students with chronic pains, you can use this quiet room to have a rest – just ask the Welcome Desk team for access. 

 

Apply to the Multi-Faith Fund

Have you got an interfaith event that you’d like to hold? Well the Multi Faith Fund can give you the opportunity to do just that. The fund, of £20,000, was one of the demands won from the GARA occupation and it's designed to enable Goldsmiths students to put on religious celebrations of all kinds and to bring faith communities together. Students and staff can apply for £50-500 in funding, until 29th May 2020, for events that will take place before 31st July 2020.

 

Womxn's History Month

We celebrate Women’s History Month, which runs throughout March, to raise and empower women by discovering, documenting and celebrating their lives and achievements. To mark the month, we’re holding some events through the SU and we’ll keep adding more info as and when they’re confirmed.
