This WinterFest, come in out of the cold and explore the wide variety of clubs and societies for you to join. All through Union House you’ll see a selection of groups telling their stories and luring you in with free (and sometimes delicious) incentives! With over 200 clubs and societies to choose from, you’re sure to find at least one that speaks to you.

So what are you into? Lovers of chocolate and wine will find friends with our many food and beverage-based clubs, while those who want to change the world can become a part of our charity and community service groups.

Dancers, future rockstars and headphone addicts will definitely want to check out the music communities. There’s even room for nearly every sport and hobby you can think of!

Of course, make sure you visit the Theatre Hub to catch the amazing student theatre groups and find out how you can get involved with bringing life to stories on stage.
