It’s also your go-to activity hub, with activities and events designed to help you learn new things, connect with similar people and develop interesting hobbies.

Clubs and Societies

Looking for an invigorating yoga session? Want to meet others who share your love of board games? We have plenty of societies for you to get involved with. We’re always looking for new suggestions, so if there’s a hobby you’d like to pursue, we can help.

  • Chill & Chat
  • Couch to 5k
  • BAME (Black, Asian & Ethnic Minority) Group
  • The Green Team
  • LGBTQ+ Society
  • Lunchtime Board Games
