Apply NOW for FREE membership of the University of London Students’ Union and Make the Most of London!

Being an SU London student gives you the right to FREE membership of the University of London Union [ULU].

You may already have been to see Michele and Rachel in SR103 to get your authorisation letter entitling you to free ULU membership, but if you have not done so, you really should do so now – you only have until FRIDAY 9th MARCH to get one as SU London only covers ULU memberships up until the break week, and believe me, time whizzes by once you embark on life as an SU Londoner!

ULU membership normally costs £20, but with SU London covering the membership cost you save £20.  Once a member of ULU you can, at your own expense if a fee applies, join a ULU club or society (Faith & Culture, Performing Arts, Sports including watersports, Lacrosse, Karate and many more!). Again at your own expense you may choose join ULU’s gym (very competitive monthly rates) the Energy Base, you can enjoy their 3 bars with excellent prices on food and drink. Plus, you can get reduced student rates to some of the best gigs in London … they’ve had Razorlight, The Strokes, Keane, Kaiser Chiefs and many more play there in recent years.

I’m guessing that a lot of you met the ULU reps during Orientation Week – they had a stall in the Student Lounge along with Faraday Football, HOST, Preseli Venture etc.  We know that a lot of you know where ULU is based (in Malet Street, just five minutes from Faraday House)  because you spent many a happy hour there last week watching the Superbowl game! If you didn’t join in the fun of Superbowl night and you haven’t joined the ENERGY BASE gym at ULU, then what are you waiting for?
