Life at Westminster is more than an excellent academic experience – you will have the opportunity to take up a whole range of new sports and hobbies. The University of Westminster Students’ Union offers and supports a range of societies, which are run by the students, for the students. Societies offer you the opportunity to easily find other students with the same interests, or perhaps with completely different interests. We’re proud to have a huge diverse melting pot of Societies on offer for you at Westminster and encourage you to get involved with them; or even start one of your own!
