Students’ Union

Clubs & societies

We have over 200 sports clubs & social societies offering something for everyone.

Many cultural, political, religious, social and sporting interests are catered for, and there are a number of societies specifically for international students.

Becoming a member of a club or society provides you with an excellent opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, pursue an existing hobby or find a new one and make the most of your time in Cardiff.

How to join

During Freshers’ Fortnight, there will be a 'Societies Fayre' and a "Sports Fayre" where all societies and clubs will be available for you to meet and join any which interest you. Societies usually charge a small membership fee of roughly £2 - £5; any specialist equipment used may cost more. Clubs charge a base fee of £10, and then anywhere between £5-£75 depending on the nature of the sport and specialist equipment.

Can’t find what you’re looking for?

If the Union isn’t already doing it, then why not set it up yourself? The Union welcomes students to band together and setup new societies and sports clubs, so if your interest isn’t being catered for head into the union and set it up yourself.
