Who are we?
East London Students' Union is a membership organisation representing around 20,000 students living here in London. Based in the London Borough of Newham, we have three campuses - one in Docklands and two in Stratford - providing inspiring spaces for students to study, live, and have fun.
Who are our students?
Our student community is deeply diverse, with students from 140 different countries, a multitude of ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds, and a bigger age range than you might expect. Their interests, lifestyles and buying habits also vary significantly, establishing an open-mindedness about a plethora of brands.
How can we help?
Advertising with us is one of the best ways to tap into the buzzing student market in East London, and we have a full suite of in-person and digital promotional opportunities to help you do just that. We know exactly what makes our student members tick, and can offer our expertise on how you can get the most out of your work with us.
As we prepare for the new academic year, there’s no better time to explore how we can help you connect with our students. Contact us or fill in the form below to explore how we can build an advertising package that meets your brand’s needs.
STUDENTS' UNION FAIR
Our largest event of the year is the Students' Union Fair. It will take place on Wednesday 4 October with more than 100 stalls including clubs, groups and societies, university services, and external brands and organisations. The fair is the biggest opportunity of the year to engage with receptive and excited UEL students as they get to grips with university life. We expect several thousand students to attend from all years/levels. Because we're running the event a week later this year, we're anticipating much greater attendance by returning students. Our one-way system ensures all students pass every stall, meaning brands can speak to every single attendee.
Gold (large/national): £450 (Gold stalls are in prime footfall locations)
Silver (small/local): £250
Bronze (charity/not-for-profit): £150
Stall includes 3m x 2m floor space; 1.8m x 0.75m table; backboard for posters; two chairs; electricity on request subject to availability.

£250 per email – format to be agreed
