University is a big, exciting place. But life isn’t always easy. We’re here to give you support when you need us, care about the things you care about, and fight for you when need someone in your corner. Our job is to make sure you feel supported every day.
We live by four promises. Four reasons our cafes, bars, shops and gym feel different to those elsewhere: we put every penny of profit back into your community, we’re always better value than the high-street, we’re at the centre of your campus community, and we choose planet over profit.
If you can imagine it, there’s probably a society for it. Wherever your curiosity takes you, whatever passion inspires you, you’ll find a home in our student-led groups.
We’ll keep you active in a way that works for you. Sport is for everyone, and we’ll help you find your level. From a casual class to captaining a competitive club, live an active lifestyle with us
This is how you make a difference during your time here, and while you’re at it, add valuable stuff to your CV, give back to the communities you’re living in and discover London in a unique way.
Our events are designed to help you meet people, try new things and have fun. Events are for everyone, but we’ve highlighted ones that are family friendly or good for postgrads. Enjoy!
