Student Societies

At Univ, there are many student societies run for members of the college to fulfil many different potential interests. If you have an interest in joining any of these societies, you can get in touch with the listed contact for the society of interest and find out how you can get involved. Please note that these are only the college societies. There are many more accessible to all university members that can be found here

1979 Society
