    For a relatively small higher education institution, SOAS is fortunate to have outstanding facilities, both scholarly and practical.

    • The Brunei Gallery, opened in 1995, provides a 40-room conference venue at a convenient, central London location. These facilities are run by the SOAS Conference Office.
    • The SOAS Library - recognised as a collection of national importance - houses over 1.3 million items in more than 400 languages. It has significant archival holdings and a growing network of electronic resources.
    • SOAS has ranked in the top 5 universities nationally in terms of Library and IT expenditure per student.
    • There are eight Regional Centres that coordinate regional expertise and run programmes of seminars, workshops and conferences to provide up-to-date and in-depth knowledge.


    SOAS Students’ Union is a bustling and diverse environment, which offers support and representation for all SOAS students. It is our role to make sure that all our students’ – be they international, home, part-time or full-time – voices are heard. We do this in two ways, first via the elected officers on the Union. We have four sabbatical co-presidents who work full time to represent you. They attend School committees and lobby management on issues raised directly by students. There are also ten part time officers who have various portfolios to work on.

    Representation also occurs at a course level. SOAS has one of the best Class Representative schemes in the country (the model for a number of other Universities). Each class has a representative who attends departmental meetings and is a vital part of decision-making processes on the lowest level. Not only does this ensure students voices are heard on every level, but that more students can be involved democratically with the direction the Students’ Union chooses. We recognize that we can only be representative by getting people involved.

    There are many other ways students can get involved with the Union. We have approximately two hundred clubs and societies, covering sport, dining, political debate, cultural issues and everything in between. We want to get students involved, and if the particular interest you have is not represented then it is easy to set up your own society. It is our job to make your life in London easier, more interesting and packed with things to do. The Union puts on plenty of events, both inside and outside of SOAS.

    In addition to all of this the Union runs the bar in SOAS, a popular meeting place for students and a Café - convenience store which is the cheapest place to buy your pens and papers in the area. SOAS Union is your Union, we exist to give you a voice and to entertain you – and hopefully to help you get involved.  See the website for more information: www.soasunion.org
