About Rep Council

The Students' Representative Council (Rep Council to its friends) is responsible for guiding the Students' Union and ensuring it represents your interests in everything it does.

Rep Council is composed of Department Reps and Representative Network Chairs, and is responsible for making policy decisions and monitoring action that follows. Rep Council also has oversight of actions coming Better Staffs Forum and reviews reports from the Officer Team and Trustee Board, to ensure that the Union is meeting commitments made to students through engaging with our democracy, manifestos and as a charity.

More detailed information on the precise membership and duties of the council can be found in our constitution and byelaws.

Rep Council Meetings for 2023 - 2024

The Representative Council meets twice a semester, for a total of six times a year. These meetings cover several standard points: a review of previous actions, updates from the Officer Team and Trustee Board, and receiving the recommendations from any Better Staffs and Better London forums that have taken place since the last meeting. The remainder of the session is then dedicated to discussion of other items submitted to the agenda.

As the Students' Union's primary legislative body, Rep Council has the power to delegate actions to elected representatives - this is usually the Officers, but can also be other council members - and to request action from Students' Union staff. A record of actions for the current academic year can be viewed below; records for previous years may be available on request.
