Liverpool Guild of Students (LGoS) is the student union of the University of Liverpool (not to be confused with the Liverpool Students' Union which represents Liverpool John Moores University), though LSU and LGoS are now in partnership.
The Guild's mission is listen, lobby, lead - which encompasses its devolved approach to representation. Unusually, the Guild elects a team of sabbatical officers who steer the organisational priorities. The staff team of 30 manage and develop day to dy and long term work of the Guild in three directorates - Membership Services, Central Services and Social Enterprise.
The title also refers to the Guild of Students building, which is the centre point of activity in student life at the University and is run by the four sabbatical officers. It contains various bars and cafes as well as administrative offices, meeting rooms, training facilities and the Athletics Union. It also hosts live music, theatre and comedy in its four main venues - Mountford Hall, the Stanley Theatre, James E Brown Room and the Courtyard.
