Students’ Union & its Affiliated Student Societies 

Lingnan University Students’ Union (LUSU), registered with the Societies Registration Office, is the only independent organization representing all full-time students at the University. Programme-based societies and many interest clubs are affiliated to LUSU.

LUSU promotes student welfare, strengthens fellow students’ cultural, intellectual and moral development, and cultivates a sense of responsibility and social awareness among fellow students.
