What is Student Council?

Student Council is where all the big decisions are made!  

Council is made up of 56 students who discuss and vote on UL Student Life policy ensuring a better student experience in all areas, academic, social, welfare, equality, and diversity. 

Council meets online every second Tuesday at 6 pm – all students are welcome to attend a meeting but only elected members may vote. Contact StudentReps@ul.ie for more info.  

As the representative group of all UL students, they direct the Executive on what work to carry out by making sure they are working on the issues that matter to you! 

Council members are #StudentLeaders who influence change right across the campus, from access, facilities, academic delivery, supports, and services. So, we want you to #UseYourVoice and join this dynamic team of 56 student leaders and represent interests that you are passionate about.
