Lancaster University Students' Union (LUSU)

Lancaster University Students' Union is an independent organisation that aims to represent the student body

Based in Bowland College, the Students' Union offers a wide range of services that are crucial to the Lancaster experience - from organising great social events and facilitating clubs and societies to offering strong support if you have problems in your academic or personal life. 

Drop in to see them any time. Their student-run welcome desk is open six days a week and their staff are only too happy to help.

The major areas they cover include:

  • LUSU Advice and Support - Free and confidential advice on a number of issues such as academic and welfare
  • LUSU Living - LUSU's own off-campus accommodation and housing
  • LUSU Activities - Societies and clubs at Lancaster
  • Purple Card - The Purple Card is the Students' Unions discount card
  • Sport - Whether you’re interested in competitive sport or just want to keep fit and meet new friends, your union offers sporting opportunities at all levels.

Please be aware, though, that you also have the right to opt out of the Students' Union.
