Our clubs and societies, run via the Students’ Union (SUBU), are based entirely on our students’ passions – so whatever you’re into, we should have it covered. These range from sports to charities, baking to gaming, education to politics or even the Bournemouth Banchees Quidditch Society (yes, it really does exist).
This makes for a truly eclectic mix of over 130 clubs and societies that you can become part of – or SUBU can even help you set up your own if you think they're missing a trick in any area.
Becoming part of a club or society (or more than one if a few take your fancy) will offer you loads of opportunities. From making new friends and socialising, to having fun away from your studies, trying new things, or developing your teamwork and leadership skills – it’ll help to bolster your CV when you graduate too.
“On the social side of things, the opportunities are endless, and if you can’t find your dream society, you can invent it! I’ve tried out the University Orchestra, which was a fantastic experience, and so much fun... this year I’m playing lots of netball with the social team, as part of the Campus Leagues.”

“RAG has allowed me to make some amazing friends and learn a lot about how to fundraise. This year I am taking on the Fire and Ice Trek for The Children's Society, with a goal to raise £2,490.”
