What is OUSU Council?

OUSU Council is the decision-making body of OUSU – a kind of student Parliament.


What do they do?

Council meets every odd week during term to; consider proposed motions, elect certain student positions, allocate funding, hold the Sabbatical Trustees to account and debate the important issues facing Oxford University Students.


Can I come?

Yes! Any Oxford student is welcome to attend, speak and propose motions at Council. There are also a number of important positions which any student can run for.


Who can vote?

  • All JCR/MCR Presidents plus two other representatives from each Common Room

  • OUSU’s Campaign representatives

  • OUSU’s Divisional Board representatives

  • OUSU’s Sabbatical Trustees
