One of the best ways to get involved in student life and make lifelong friends is to join societies and sports clubs where you'll meet people with shared interests.

Clubs and societies

DUSA hosts a broad range of student-led clubs and societies, so you can pursue your interests and make new friends.

Ever wanted to try performing on stage? What about getting involved with charity work and making a difference? With our broad range of societies, you can keep up with a current hobby, join a group related to your studies, or try something completely different.

Sports Union

We also have over 40 sports clubs hosted by the Sports Union.  Whatever your aspirations or experience in sport we have something for everyone and our clubs are inclusive and progressive.  

Even if you don't want to join a club, you can still take part in sport through other events such as Varsity, where we go head-to-head with Abertay University to compete in various sports.
