The Delhi University Students Union, generally abbreviated as DUSU, is the umbrella student organisation at the University of Delhi.

DUSU is the representative body of students from most Delhi University Colleges and Faculties. Each College also has its own students union to which elections are held every year. Student elections are keenly contested. Several of the office bearers of DUSU have gone on to hold public office at the State and Centre level.

DUSU elections are considered the most high profile student union elections in the country as they provide an opportunity to enter directly into local and national politics.[1] The University of Delhi has a long history of student political activity.

The elections to Delhi University Students Union, formerly indirect through the electoral votes of college councillors, are now held by direct voting by the students of the University and constituent colleges. The elections are usually held in August–September of each year.[2]

Aman Awana is the current President. Utkarsh Chaudhary the much hyped ABVP candidate is the Vice President. Karishma Thakur, the only Office-Bearer representing NSUI is the Secretary and Raju seats the post of Joint Secretary
