Are you a former Queen Mary student and want to stay in touch with the Students' Union and BLSA? We are launching new membership options for graduating and former students. The membership will allow you to keep up to date with our campaigns, projects and activities, plus you'll get access to exclusive networking and social events throughout the year, all at an affordable annual price.

At the moment, we have two new options available, an Annual Membership and a one-off Friends Donation, which allows you to donate to a Club or Society of your choice.

Membership perks include:
  • Supporting our main Membership Fund, where students can apply for funding for their different projects
  • Receive invites to exclusive membership networking events with other members and guest speakers
  • Receive invites to exclusive social events and reunions with former students
  • Keep your access to hundreds of student discounts with a free 1 year TOTUM card
  • Receive a quarterly newsletter featuring all the latest updates from Clubs, Societies, the Students' Union and BLSA
  • Access exclusive discounts on advertising through the Students' Union's marketing channels - perfect for start-up businesses!

Our Annual Membership is a great way for you to make a regular contribution to student-led activities and projects, whilst gaining access to a number of exclusive member benefits, invites to special events and much more. For a limited time we are offering Annual memberships for £25 a year for direct debit purchasers, instead of the regular rate of £50 a year.

A minimum of 50% of your membership fee will go towards a new Clubs & Societies Fund. Funding decisions will be made by a student-led panel, with proportional funding by campus based on the Faculty of Annual membership members.

You may need to set up a guest account to complete your purchase.
