Our People

At KCLSU we’re led by a team of Student Officers elected to their positions by King’s College London students (as valued KCLSU members). Student Officers lead KCLSU as an organisation, drive what we campaign for, and lobby at a College and national level to make changes in the interests of the student body.

Student Officers are also a part of the KCLSU Trustee Board. Along with the Student Officers, the KCLSU Trustee Board also has 4 elected Student Trustees and 4 Lay Trustees. The KCLSU Trustee Board is the ultimate decision making body for the overall direction of the Students’ Union.

Student Officers are supported by a team of 83 student staff and 43 non-student staff. The staff team work to deliver services and support for all King’s College London students. Every King’s College London student is automatically a KCLSU member.

As a democratic charity, we’re led by students for students. As well as our Student Officers and Student Trustees there are also Student Reps and Student Councillors, all working to make sure that the views of students are heard and acted upon by the Students’ Union and the College. To find your Student Rep or to contact your Student Councillors, visit our Representing You web pages.

KCLSU Trustee Board

KCLSU is registered with the Charity Commission, and our Trustee Board has overall responsibility for the legal, strategic and financial health of the Union. The Trustee Board is the decision maker of the Students’ Union and is the ultimate decision-making body of the Students’ Union.

Our Trustee Board is made up of:

  • 5 Student Officers, who lead KCLSU and were elected to their positions by King’s College London students. Student Officers lead KCLSU as an organisation, drive what we campaign for, and lobby at a College and national level to make changes in the interests of the student body.
  • 4 elected Student Trustees, elected by King’s College London students.
  • 4 Lay Trustees, who are external people, recruited for their expertise in specific areas.

KCLSU Trustees all agree to abide by a Code of Conduct and meet their Terms of Reference. Find out more by reading the KCLSU Governance Policies, Procedures and Guidance document.

All Trustees are accountable for the decisions they make individually and collectively. Every year at the KCLSU Annual General Meeting, all King‘s students (who are the members of KCLSU) have the opportunity to put questions to the KCLSU Trustee Board. There are presentations and discussions held about the organisation’s performance and published Annual Report and Accounts. If you’d like to see a summary of the most recent Trustee Board meeting, please contact us at hello@kclsu.org.

Full details on how KCLSU Trustees are appointed and removed and how they are held accountable by our student membership can be found in our Articles of Association.
