Setting up a new Club or Society

If none of our Societies currently appeal to you, we encourage you to set up your own new one – it couldn’t be easier:

1.  Complete the New Society Form. The form MUST have 2 signatures by students interested in signing up to the new sport/society.

2.  The decision will take approx. 10 days and you will receive an email with the decision from Rio Hall (VP Activities).


Why set up a new group?

  • It’s a great way to meet new friends and socialise with people who share your interests
  • It’s also a great way to maximise your University experience and have fun!
  • The group can consume as much or as little of your leisure time as you desire – make it your own
  • You have the potential to develop an established group and leave a legacy by getting involved in community initiatives, fundraising for local charities, running events and competitions at the University, the list is endless.
  • Being a leading role in a club or society is a fantastic way to develop your own personal skills and enhance your CV ready for when you leave University.
