Give it a Go
The Reading University Students' Union (RUSU) is home to a wide range of sports clubs, societies and volunteering projects, all of which are run voluntarily by students. There are currently over 150 groups, so there's bound to be something for you. All students are welcome to join any group they wish.
The LGBT+ society is run for, and led by, LGBT+ students. It welcomes anyone who identifies as a sexual and/or gender minority.
Together, RUSU and the LGBT+ society won ‘LGBT Event of the Year' at this year's National Union of Students LGBT+ Conference.
As a student, you will have access to the extensive sports facilities on offer – both indoors and outdoors. On campus you will find courts, pitches and playing fields for a wide range of sports, as well as a fully equipped sports centre with gym.
Art, Music and Dance facilities
Multiple societies offer exciting opportunities in drama, music and dance that cover a range of styles, genres and abilities. Led by experienced students and teachers, you can perform your way through university in weekly rehearsals and regular events.
There are also societies that offer opportunities for students interested in media, film, comedy and fine art.
The campus is orientated to all sorts of social activities including a huge number of clubs and societies, coffee shops, a nightclub and meeting areas. This layout makes socialising a huge aspect of life, which is what makes university so enjoyable for me.
