South Bank Students' Union

About Us

South Bank Students' Union is on a mission to totally transform the way a students' union works in a modern university. Based at the heart of London's Elephant & Castle, we are working towards our new 2025 ambition to become a relevant, responsive, and truly transformative students' union that improves the lives of students on every course and beyond at London South Bank University - representing students' academic interests and contributing to a prosperous, thriving, and civic learning community.

Our Approach to EDI

SBSU's simple vision of disrupting inequality is the heartbeat of the organisation and it is this which steers its decisions, practice, and priorities. It unifies our services, and it drives our staff to remove societal barriers so that all people can achieve their full potential. SBSU believes that in order to truly disrupt inequality for its members, it must also strive to do this for its workforce – in short, staff must experience it in order to deliver it!

Our Union benefits enormously from having a team of staff with a range of diverse lived experiences. We understand that some life circumstances might be more complex, and that some will have had to overcome more barriers. We value the unique perspectives that are formed by an individual's background and believe that bringing your whole self to work is essential for informed decision making and collaboration and paves the way for high performance.

This approach underpins all of the organisation's policies to ensure our practice is based on the equal and fair treatment of others. We do this with pride, integrity, and accountability, and understand we act as a role model to others in ensuring the promotion and practice of equality, diversity, and inclusion for all.
