Throughout your time at University some of your greatest experiences can come from your involvement with societies. Here at Kingston we are proud to offer over 100 active societies who organise and run weekly activities related to culture, faith, academia, arts, activities, liberation and campaigns. Approximately 5000 students join at least one society during their time at Kingston University. From Anime to Chess, Entrepreneur to Pharmacy, Nigerian to Wine, there’s bound to be something that you’ll want to get involved with! 

Societies are a great way to make new friends, meet like minded people and provide you with the opportunity to try something you might never have thought of before, all without breaking the bank and making your experience at Kingston about so much more than just getting a degree.

With graduate employment becoming ever more competitive, involvement with societies will also enhance your CV, especially if you choose to take on a leadership role within a society committee later in your University career.

On the other hand, if you feel like something’s missing how about starting up your own society? All you need is the support of 10 other students and we can help you get the ball rolling with facilities and funding.

If you have any questions regarding the day to day running of societies please feel free to contact the Societies Coordinator at or call 020 8417 7775.
