Union General Meetings

Union General Meetings

Union General Meetings are All-Student Meetings and are commonly known as UGMs. Any student can call (and attend) a UGM - the second highest decision-making body in your Students’ Union (second to Referendums).

If you have a campaign that you want the student body to support, you can demand that a UGM is held, by either:

  • Getting 200 Queen's students to sign a petition
  • Getting 20 Queen's Students’ Union Councillors to sign a petition
  • Asking Queen's Students’ Union Council to call a UGM

At the UGM your campaign will be discussed and voted upon.

If you want to call a UGM, contact the Student Voice team. They can advise you in confidence before you get started.

Next UGM

As a result of a petition signed by 21 members of Student Council, a Union General Meeting or All-Student Meeting will be held at 2pm on Wednesday 11 May 2016 any student can come along and give their opinion on the following proposal:

Queen’s University Belfast should suspend course closures, cuts to student places and the arbitrary increase of A-level entry tariffs, as outlined in the Size and Shape Review, pending consultation with students.
