We support six liberation groups, bringing together BME (black and minority ethnic), international students, women, LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer +), trans and non-binary students, and disabled students, to meet new people, build networks, and work on issues, campaigns and plans.

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

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

All positions are currently vacant. You can nominate yourself here.

There is also a Liberation Room downstairs in the Students' Union Building, a space that anyone who is a part of these groups use. Our regular liberation coffee hours take place in this room.
