Aberystwyth University Clubs
A Clubs and Societies Fayre is held every Freshers’ week where all societies and clubs are available for you to meet and join any which interest you. Societies usually charge a small membership fee; any specialist equipment used may cost more. You will need to buy a Club Sport membership to join a sports club, which allows you to use the Sports Centre’s facilities at a member’s rate.
If you can’t find your perfect club or society, why not create your own? The Students’ Union welcomes and supports students to set up new societies and sports clubs, all you need is a minimum of 20 members to establish your club/society.
