Clubs and societies play an active role in the University community by providing students and staff the opportunity to meet people with common interests and to pursue those interests. Some clubs, societies and associations are also open to members of the general public.
There are more than 40 clubs & societies affiliated with the Student Association. These include sporting, recreational and faculty groups. The Student Association offers financial and administrative support to these organisations. Students are encouraged to join existing clubs or to start their own.
Some clubs, associations and societies which have developed WWW pages are listed below.
