How will the campaign impact King's students?

This will be beneficial to many students as it can ensure that everyone has fair access to the textbooks and there isn't a struggle to find them at the library. It allows students to freely annotate their books and use them in the most convenient way to study without compromising their style due to have to constantly use library books. It also helps students form less privileged backgrounds being able to afford these books, which can accumulate to a large cost and help save many people money and not have to prioritise going to work and miss seminars. It provides better opportunity for focus on academic success.

Which students at King's will the campaign impact?

This campaign includes everyone and benefits everyone in a very positive way.

For a campaign to be officially supported by KCLSU, it needs to have the support of our student membership which is done through an online petition. Add your name to the petition to support the campaign.

Campaigns need to be supported by 150 KCLSU members to become a KCLSU supported campaign or 75 Association members to become a KCLSU Association Supported campaign.

Once the threshold is reached, it means the campaign will receive guidance and support from KCLSU staff to create a strategy and deliver the campaign aim. You can find out more on our campaigns pages.
