Birkbeck College Students’ Union was founded in 1904 and was one of the founding members of the National Union of Students. It was governed by a Council, elected from and responsible to the students. Students initially paid an annual membership fee to join, but students are now automatically registered as members when they enrol onto a course at the college.

As Birkbeck primarily offers part-time courses, often in the evenings, student life is less centralised than in other universities. It does not offer its own halls of residence, for instance, though Birkbeck students do have access to the University of London’s intercollegiate halls.
Birkbeck Students’ Union offers a number of societies for students, as well as a various sports clubs that compete in the University of London league. It also provides student representation and support, a student magazine, a student shop and a bar. Birkbeck students also have access to the societies and clubs of the Student Central, whose building adjoins Birkbeck’s Bloomsbury site.
The college arms include a lamp and an owl, symbolising the college’s motto ‘In nocte consilium’ (translated as “study by night”). Because of this, the student magazine was called Lamp and Owl. Its name was changed in 2010 to ‘Lampanelle’, and after an 18-month hiatus returned in February 2012 with the name having reverted to The Lamp And Owl.
The original name of the institution was the London Mechanics’ Institute. For this reason, the annual literary magazine published by the Birkbeck MA Creative Writing programme is called The Mechanics’ Institute Review.
