Clubs and Societies

University is a great time to try something new while meeting new people. Get involved by joining a society, there are over 100 to choose from! Ranging from academic groups to niche interests, there's something for you.

Got a great idea for a society but can't find one? Start your own and find other students who are interested.

Become A ‘Wall Wisher’!

You may have used our Wall of Love around St Valentine’s Day, well now we’re bringing it back just for you!

Have you seen any random acts of kindness you want to congratulate and shout about? Have you got any ‘small wins’ you want to tell people that you’ve achieved (e.g. you did some gardening, cooked your first meal etc.)? Do you want to tell us what you’re missing (if anything) about university? Or do you simply want to tell your crush that even COVID-19 can’t stop you crushing on them? Well now you can!

Simply leave a message on our wall and as long as it’s PG rated, everyone can see it. You can even make it anonymous if you want to. Let’s share some of the good things happening right now to brighten everyone’s day. The wall even accepts pictures, memes and gifs, so what are you waiting for?!

Other Ways to Get Involved

Joining a society isn't the only way you can get involed with your Students' Union; having your say in our elections or being part of our representation network is a great way to take part.

Did you know we also regularly employ students at our outlets and in assisting roles that fit around your studies?
