About societies

Amazing things happen at Lancaster University, and when they do, one of our student societies is usually behind it.

There are more than 200 societies covering a huge range of activities, hobbies and causes.

A society is a group of like-minded students, working together to do what they love. You can join a society to meet people who share your interests, to try something completely new, to discover a new culture or to increase your academic network.

Throughout the year there will be rehearsals and performances, campaigns, competitions, cooking, guest speaker events, and endless socials, all brought to you by our unique, interesting and friendly student groups. As you can tell, here at Lancaster University Students' Union, we are really proud of what our groups do.

If you can't find a society that matches your interests, you can even start your own!
