A great way to make friends and get involved at uni is to have something in common. That could be musical taste, sharing a faith, playing sport or just a way of life.
Coming to university isn’t just about getting qualifications, it’s also about having fun, trying something new and making friends. Joining a sports club or society is a great way to do this - no matter what year or stage of the university you’re at.
We have over 30 different sports clubs in the Students’ Union - covering everything from American football and rugby to climbing and equestrian.
Most sports clubs also compete in BUCS (British University and Colleges Sport), and local competitions.
And there are loads of sporting opportunities available through Christ Church Sport and Active Health.
There are over 50 societies to choose from - whether you’re interested in politics, arts, games, the environment or your subject area- we hope there’s something for everyone.
But if you can’t find the right society for you, why not form your own? Start off by chatting to the Student Union President (Student Activities) and they’ll run you through the process and answer any questions you’ve got.
Build your skills and experience and give something back to the community by volunteering. Our friendly volunteering team can help you find the right opportunity no matter how much time you can spare.
Being active is great for your overall health, and it can really help your mental wellbeing too. We’ve lots of free opportunities for you to get started with fitness and exercise.
