Student Council is made up of nine elected members and represents students at the highest level of decision-making by feeding back to MIT leadership about strategic matters through membership in institute committees and the Academic board. The Student Council helps to keep the institute aware of and focused on the views and needs of all MIT students. Elections are held every year between the months of August and November.

Class Representative (class reps) play a vital role in advocating for students within their class. They are entrusted with the responsibility of addressing concerns, ideas, and feedback in a timely manner. Initially, their focus is on resolving issues within their own class. However, if these matters have an impact beyond their class, class reps collaborate with their counterparts from other classes within their cohort. This collaborative effort ensures that feedback is effectively communicated to lecturers and academic leads. Each class can have up to 2 class reps. Class reps are recruited every year in February and July.

Student Voice Representative represent the students in their school. Their duties cover the academic, wellbeing and social needs of the students they represent. Student Voice Reps work with leadership in their schools, to represent the views and opinions of their students, assist with events and help to create a fun and engaging student experience on campus. Each school can have up to 3 student voice reps. Student Voice reps are recruited every year in February and July.
