University of London Volunteering
The Volunteering Services Unit (VSU) is UCLU’s dedicated facility for students who want to get involved with volunteering projects in London. You can give as much or as little time as you can spare; learning new skills, meeting new people, and making a real difference.
Okay, how do you find out more about volunteering? Visit our ‘Get Started’ page – you can sign up for our weekly vacancies bulletin, tell us what sorts of things you’re interested in, and see what’s on offer.
Not sure what you’d like to do? Have a browse of around 500 different community volunteering opportunities for UCL students in our Volunteering Directory.
Don’t have much time, but still want to get involved? Why not try volunteering at a one-off event with one of our partner organisations? Our programme’s updated weekly with conservation events, festivals, fundraising activities, sports and cultural events and lots more. Find out more.
If you have an idea for a project that could have a positive effect on the local community, why not create it yourself? Or you could develop your leadership and organisational skills by taking on one of our existing projects. Find out more.
Throughout October and November this year, the Volunteering Services Unit will be holding six volunteering fairs as part of our Festival of Volunteering! The fairs are a fantastic way for our partner organisations and Student-Led Volunteering Projects to meet with UCL students here on campus and discuss volunteering.
