Clubs & Socs

Being at UCA isn’t all hard work, so we provide the opportunity for students to participate in Clubs and Societies by either running one or being a member.

Plenty of clubs and societies are up and running, from Dungeons and Dragons, to Film and Life-Drawing, there is something for everyone. If fitness and dance is more your thing we have exciting opportunities like Boxing, Pole Fitness and K-Pop Dance which will for sure get your heart pumping.

Clubs and societies usually run Monday to Friday after 5pm and throughout the year you can expect amazing shows like the Musical Theatre Society’s end of year stage production and the dance Charity Showcase, If you think there’s something missing, you can start your own club or society too!


Please note that Clubs and Society Memberships are non-refundable.

Participation Fund

Any UCA student can apply for the Participation Fund if they encounter financial or equipment barriers to taking part in Clubs, Societies and Communities. Clubs, Societies and Communities are an important part of extra-curricular life at UCA and support student wellbeing and learning while at university. No student should feel like they cannot take part or are at a disadvantage due to financial hardship or the need to purchase additional materials.

Identity Communities

Under the umbrella of Communities, we have four ‘Identity Communities’. These are based on the National Union of Students’ four main liberation campaigns:

  • Women Students
  • Disabled Students
  • Students of Colour (formerly known as BAME Students)
  • LGBTQ+ Students

You can take part in any Identity Community you identify into – the Students of Colour Community is for black or minority ethnicity students only, LGBTQ+ Students Community is for students who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer+ only, and so on. Our Women Students Community is Trans*-inclusive.
These Communities will run events and campaigns throughout the year, with the support of the Union. You can join an Identity Community by clicking the link at the bottom of that Community’s page, represent your Identity Community at Union Justice Groups, or you can volunteer to be a leader for an Identity Community and help to make it a fun and supportive space for students.
