Students' Union Activities

As well as a place to study, University is also a place to live and socialise. We aim to make it as easy as possible for students to make new friends and play an active social role in University life.

‌From American Football to Wakeboarding, the aim of the Sports and Societies on offer through the Students' Union is to bring together those with common interests and facilitate them in pursuing a hobby or activity they are interested in.

With over 2,000 students actively involved with over 100 different Sports & Societies there is something for everyone.
