About us

Central SU works to represent all students of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. We work with the university, but are a different organisation.

Upon joining Central you automatically become a member of the The Students' Union and are therefore entitled to use any of our services, vote in elections and run for various positions on the Student Union Team. 

The Students’ Union is run by a team of dedicated volunteer student officers, elected every year by the students. This team is led by a full-time President. With 15 different departments operating in the SU there is a diverse range of work being done exclusively for and by the students here at Central.

The President and other officers spend a lot of their time sitting on different boards and committees within the University to make sure that Central is making decisions with our member’s best interests in mind and to speak on their behalf when necessary. Where possible we strive to communicate the outcomes of these meetings to our members and find out what is important to them in the first place.

All of our members are also part of National Union of Students (NUS). We work with these organisations to ensure that you are well represented through various conferences and attend their training events to ensure we are working at our best for our members.

RCSSD is a college of the University of London. All students are therefore eligible to access the facilities of Student Central; formerly the University of London Union. Student Central offers societies, a gym and bar facilities. For more information, click here
