Vision, Values and Objectives

Our vision at LiverpoolSU is for all of our student members to Love Student Life.

We exist solely to make the lives of LJMU students better.


Our values are to be:

Student Led
Everything we do at LiverpoolSU comes from and is led by students through our leadership positions, research, campaigns, employment and activities.

We're here to welcome and support you on your journey at LJMU. At any point you want to get involved, we will make sure you feel able to do so.

Easy to Use
LiverpoolSU is there for you every step of way, ensuring our services and activities are easy to access and benefit from.

We inspire, empower and encourage you by providing opportunities to become the best you can be.

We make change by challenging those who have an impact on student life no matter how big or small. In order to improve what we can offer and provide for you we also need to be challenged.


Our Mission

Liverpool Students’ Union exists to help all students love student life. We do this through providing and supporting course reps, sports teams, societies and events; campaigning with and on behalf of students; and offering support, employability skills, advice and information. We want our students to have the best academic, social and cultural experience Liverpool can offer.

As your students' union, we want to make sure you get the most from your...

  • Social life – find entertainment through our sports, clubs, societies and events. Keep up to date with the best Liverpool has to offer.

  • Academic life – get the most from your learning experience. We will represent your views and lobby on your behalf when something needs to change.

  • Work life – be prepared for your future career. The students’ union and its societies provide volunteer and work opportunities.


We know that things don’t always go to plan so we will…

  • Support you when you need it, through our Advice Centre, Course Reps and Hall Reps.

  • Campaign with you on the issues that are important to you, inside the university and beyond.

Every LJMU student is automatically a member of Liverpool Students’ Union and the Union is led by student officers who are elected by you.

Together we have a powerful voice within the university.
