Societies at Durham University

Societies can also be referred to as the 'extra-curricular' part of university. If you have a hobby or activity you enjoy doing in your spare time, Durham probably has a society for it! A society is a group of people who come together to share time and experiences within a particular interest - it's a bit like being part of a club! There are more than 200 societies within Durham Students Union, and all of these have been set up and lead by students. If there isn't a society for the thing you enjoy, you can always start it up while you're at Durham. From music to drama, from Harry Potter to gaming, and from baking to crafting, there's so much to choose from. Some of our students choose to be part of multiple societies to meet their multiple interests too. On top of the fun and social aspect of joining a society, these experiences can teach you lots of skills you will need when you graduate!
