Start a Society

Is there a society you would LOVE to see in the union? Why not start your own?

Starting a new society is easy. All you need is an idea, people who are keen to get involved and time to invest to develop and grow the society.

You will also get support from the SU in the shape of:

  • Up to £100 start-up funding
  • Continuous advice and support
  • Use of our facilities and venues

Societies need to have 10 people interested in them in order to officially start-up. Once you have 10 people interested, please fill out the form below to register your interest, and the Students' Union will be in touch with relevant forms for you to fill in.

If you don't know 10 people who want to be part of the society yet, you can post your idea on our societies form where you can find other students who may want to join the society:

Whether you’re a new or returning student, societies are a great opportunity to try something different, meet up with friends and enhance your university experience. We have many societies to choose from and there’s no limit on how many you can join! Whether you’re interested in sports, arts and crafts or faith, there is something for everyone. We also have many societies that compliment your academic studies.

All our societies are listed below with links to their information and contact details. However, if you don’t see a society you’re interested in, why not start your own? It’s easy to do and we’ll help you with filling out forms and all the information you’ll need. If you have any questions or queries regarding societies please email
