KCLSU Associations

We have eight associations at KCLSU - if we self-define into any of these Associations, we are automatically a members of this Association. This means, as a group, we represent everyone within this Association and we can make decisions as a collective.

These are groups of students that aim to combat oppression, discrimination and inequality faced by students on a local and national level. associations exist to connect us, highlight current issues, and empower us to act collectively and bring about change.

Associations at KCLSU aim to be intersectional. Meaning they recognise the intersections (or overlaps) between different identities and the knock-on effects. It’s possible to self-define into one, some, or all of the Associations. As a result, Associations often work together to achieve the best results.

Our Association Officers

Each Association has an Association Officer, and a number of them have committee members who are elected to support the work that they do.

Every Association Officer sits on the Welfare Forum for the KCLSU Union Development Committees and makes decisions on student ideas that are submitted to change the union.

Our Association Leads also work with our Student Officers to create change at a college level, as well as representing KCLSU at NUS Liberation Conferences.

Working Towards Liberation

Don’t self-define into an Associations’ community? There are still opportunities to get involved by supporting Liberation campaigns.

Anyone part of an Association, activity group, or society that’s already working on a Liberation related issue may want to take positive action to increase participation in their activities.

Get in Touch

The Associations are supported by our Liberation Development Coordinator and the Student Voice team.
