University Of Bristol Societies

Bristol SU helps its students to run over 260 societies and over 60 sports clubs. Whether it’s well-known sports like football, rugby or running, or something more unusual, Bristol SU has a huge range of options. Our societies cover everything from board games to cheese, from magic to Pokémon. They are great support networks for academic areas, health, and liberation groups. Follow the links below to find out more!

Bristol SU has over 70 sport clubs and societies, of which 15 are recognised as Performance Clubs and 13 are Kick Start Clubs. We enter teams in national university competitions, organised by BUCS, and this year finished 12th in the overall inter-university sports league. Our aim is to be in the top ten within three years.
