The University of London Union (commonly referred to as ULU, pron. ‘yoo-loo’) was Europe’s largest students’ union, with over 120,000 students as the focus of its activities. Each student was also a member of the student union of their individual college, as the University of London is a federal structure encompassing many constituent colleges.

ULU provided a range of services on an intercollegiate basis, including cultural, recreational and sporting activities. Its seven-floor building in Malet Street, Central London, next to Birkbeck, University of London, included bars, restaurants, shops, banks, swimming pool and a live music venue

In July 2014, ULU was abolished by its parent institution, the University of London, and replaced by ‘Student Central, London’. This offers full membership to University of London students, and associate membership to other university students, and other groups.
