Societies for all
The Union is home to a wide range of societies and clubs, all of which are run voluntarily by students. There are currently over 150 societies and sports clubs, which all students are welcome to join.
If you are feeling homesick or just want to try something new these friendly groups are a great way for you to meet people, get involved and feel part of a community.
The LGBT+ society is run for and by LGBT+ students and welcomes anyone who identifies with 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.
