Societies at Northampton

Here at Northampton we offer a broad range of societies! From course-based groups, to those based around cultural, religious, political or ethical sensibilities. Many of our societies are based on common interests, such as the popular Salsa Society, or the Pole Fitness Society.

In 2014 we became the first Students' Union to offer free societies - an offer that has since been replicated at other institutions. The removal of membership fees has seen participation in our societies increase substantially, and the number of fun and varied activities has soared. 

Societies regularly run a number of social events, meetings and trips throughout the year – whether it’s a trip to Belgium, down to London to see a show, or a night at the Students’ Union – there’s something for everyone. Joining a society is also an exciting opportunity to learn something new, like airsoft or meditation; visit somewhere you’ve never been before, or further develop a passion or skill you already have!

To see a full list of the societies currently on offer have a look at our Societies A-Z List or check out our Societies Handbook below, and if you can’t find the society you are looking for, then why not start your own?! As your Students' Union we are here to make sure that you have the best time whilst at university, so if there is a society that we don't currently offer we can help you set it up! It’s simple – check out our 4 simple steps to starting a new society to find out how.
