What is a Society?
Societies at Solent come in all shapes and sizes. Joining a society is a great way to meet like-minded people and make the most from your experience at university. The Societies range from groups of students meeting to share their hobbies and interests, giving support on their course or help develop experience for their future career.
Check out our Find a society page to see all the active societies.
How to Join a Society?
Joining a society is easy, come over to the Welcome Centre, found on the First Floor of the SU building. You will be given a sign-up sheet to tick off which societies you’d like to join and pay at the desk.
Your contact information will be given to the committee of the society and they will get in touch with you to welcome you.
How to start your own?
Don’t see anything you like from our list of societies? Why not start your own.
All you need is 4 other likeminded students from Solent, complete a new society application form.
The SU will review the application to make sure it fits with our values and there isn’t already a society similar, and give you feedback on the result.
Then all you have to do is get members to sign up, elect your committee and away you go.
Full details are available on our FAQs and Resources Page. Here you can download the process and application form.
