Get involved


Here’s a sample of what you can get involved in at the Union.


You might decide to join one of our many cultural, political and performance groups - they’re an excellent way to meet like-minded people. See the Students' Union website for the current list of societies.



The Union offers a diverse range of sports - everything from football and hockey to swing dance and capoeira.

Club Pulse

Our gym on campus provides a large range of exercise equipment and regular fitness classes at affordable prices.

Smiths Magazine 

Our Guardian award-winning student magazine is published throughout the year, and is always keen to hear from potential contributors.

Leopard Newspaper

The new student newspaper, your first stop for all things Goldsmiths!

Wired Radio 

Goldsmiths’ long-running student radio station is based on campus, with an on-air and off-air suite. The Wired crew also organise the popular Live Wire band nights at the Union.


Goldsmiths Students' Union runs our on-site nursery. Details of how to join the waiting list and costs are on the Students' Union website.

Volunteering and student development 

This is a major focus of the Union’s activities, and a great chance to get some experience, open up your horizons, and really make a difference. You might find yourself mentoring local children, engaging the local community, or trying some campaign and committee work. A number of the volunteer schemes are award-winning.

Advice and representation 

The Students’ Union Advice Centre provides professional, independent advice on issues relating to academic programmes. In addition, the Union has a Welfare and Education Officer, elected by Goldsmiths students to represent you on academic and pastoral issues. All the elected officers are here to support you and represent you on an individual level.

Meet the Students' Union Officers on the Students' Union website.
