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.  

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!
