Sports and Societies

All members of college can join any college society or sports club they wish. Teams and clubs welcome members of all ability - or curious newcomers - so don't let anything put you off, and you can join at any time of the year. Information and contact details about most of them will be sent to new students before they arrive, and all students are recommended to attend the sports and societies fair in college in October where you can find out more.

Also on offer are university-level societies and sports clubs. There tends to be a greater variety of university societies than college ones due to larger numbers, so whatever your interests there’s likely to be something for you. University sports clubs are generally for those of a decent level of ability (although some do accept complete beginners too). It’s definitely worth visiting the DSU clubs & societies fair during Freshers'/Induction Week.
