From Hiking to Bhangra, Board Games to Philosophy, we have over 400 different societies ready and waiting for you to try. We have a huge variety of religious, cultural, political, academic, arts, media, performance, sports and recreational societies, so there's something for everyone at Manchester. But if you don't find what you're looking for you can always start your own!

Joining a society is a brilliant way to meet new people who share your interests and enrich your time here in Manchester. It is very easy too. Come along to the Student Fair in September or join online.

We are currently updating our list of societies ready for September, so if you can't find what you're looking for, don't panic! We'll have a huge range ready and waiting for you soon!

 So if you have any questions, whether its about joining a society or starting one, then come and visit us in the Student Activities Centre or drop us an email on

Its no coincidence that the busy old worker bee is the symbol of the city of Manchester.

Since the Students’ Union was established we have been busy setting up societies, writing an award winning newspaper, broadcasting a radio station with our very own DJs, reaching out into our community and generating absolutely loads of money for local charities.

This is student life. Amplified.
