There’s no better way to make friends and get involved in university life than to join a student society. You will have close to 90 to choose from at the University of East London.
There’s our International Student Society, for students from all over the world, where you can sign up for trips to comedy clubs, parties, underground music venues and movie nights.
We have nine societies for individual nationalities, from the African Caribbean Society to the Nigerian Union. Each will offer you support, a network of people you can instantly relate to, and plenty of socialising.
UEL has 26 sports clubs - from competitive cheerleading to volleyball - some of which train using the iconic facilities at the Olympic Park in Stratford.
Our SportsDock complex is one of the best indoor sports facilities in London. Team USA were so impressed by it that they chose it as their base for the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics.
There are almost 50 other non-sporting clubs on offer. They range from faith groups to academic societies, from the DJ Society to the ‘Barking Bateria’ samba band, from our Student Radio Society to our Anime and Manga Society.
The best time to sample the range of opportunities on offer is during Freshers’ Week, when many of university’s clubs and societies set up stall at the Welcome Fair in the main hall of SportsDock.
