Student Groups to Join

Here at KCLSU we have over 300 student groups and societies for you to join. From sports groups, to the Harry Potter society, to the Bhangra society, there is something for everyone! Groups and societies are a great way to connect with others, build communities or campaign on issues.

Groups and societies are a great way to connect with others, build communities or campaign on issues.

They also allow people to come together with common cultures, faiths, backgrounds and interests, and give students the opportunity to help volunteer in their community or further their academic passions.

Take a look here to find out more and you can also meet many of our groups and societies at the Welcome Fair.
