The Liberal Students Forum or LSF ( _de. Liberales Studentinnen und Studenten Forum) is a liberal political party in Austria. It is the youth and student wing of the Liberal Forum.

In 1993, Heide Schmidt left the Austrian Freedom Party with four other members of parliament due to the right-wing populist course of the party under Jörg Haider's leadership and founded the Liberal Forum. The same year, the Liberal Student Forum was founded as the youth and student wing of the party.

The LSF has been running for elections for the national and various university councils of the student union ÖH since 1995.
