If you would no longer like your Society to operate, or you'd like to disaffiliate from Lancaster University Students' Union, then you need to email the VP Activities.


We'll remove your Society from the Students' Union website, and notify ISS that your society email address is no longer in use. Your bank account signatories will also need to inform the bank that you'd like to close the account.

All society equipment and assets must be returned to the Student Union.


If you'd like to disaffiliate from the Students' Union:

If you'd still like to run activities, but without affiliation to LUSU please be aware of the following:

  • The group cannot use "Lancaster University" within the groups name, without written permission from Lancaster University.
