Set up a new club or society

Create a new club

If you are interested in setting up a new sports club then contact the VP Activities officer and book a meeting to discuss your ideas.

Create a new society

There is a huge range of societies to join at Lancaster, a list of which can be seen here. However, if you’ve had a look and nothing is catching your eye, why not set up your own group? There’s just a few documents to complete, and it’s a very easy process!

Do you have a new idea for a group or activity? Is it different to any other activity offered already? Will people be interested in joining?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then we want to hear more about your idea!
