Clubs and societies

Whether you’ve been doing it for years or feel like trying something new, there are an enormous variety of opportunities where you can get involved, make new friends, have fun and be part of the student community. These include:

  • sports clubs

  • societies

  • volunteering opportunities

  • student media

  • campaigning groups.

King's College London Students' Union (KCLSU) provides both financial and logistical support to help activities run smoothly, but it is up to you how these activities are organised.

KCLSU can also help you get your own student activity group up and running.

King's Sport

King's Sport delivers a range of opportunities and events for students to get involved in sport and physical activity; they operate three gyms across King's campuses and two within halls of residence.

King's Sport also offers a sports scholarship programme for high-performing athletes (King's Sport Performance), a social sports programme (BeActive) and an online fitness rewards platform (King's Move). Whether you're a first time participant or seasoned competitor, we have something for you to join the King's Pride.

Interest societies

There are over 100 societies you can join, varying from politics and debate, to comedy, musical theatre and everything in between.

The Greenwood Theatre is one of the many facilities available for society use. The events each society organises are in the social calendar.
