Clubs and social environment

Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.

2017

"There are some great societies. I really liked the Krishna Consciousness Society (KCSoc) as it was a great place to meet people, learn more about ancient wisdom and have congregational meditation sessions every week. This was great for the stressful periods at university!"
"Societies are very active and give you a feeling of community. Teachers are friendly and make you feel welcome while departments put in effort to get to know you."
"Clubs are good but you need to travel for some, which can make them difficult to attend."
"There are many clubs and societies available at City."
"We have lots of sporting events and teams to sign up to as well as a gym."
"Some of the societies could be more active."
"There are many opportunities to socialise (especially with the university expansion that is now completed) and there is an abundance of societies for different topics, activities and also for different courses, making it easy to socialise with those in any category."

2016

"There's only a handful of sport and social events organised. You can sign up to a society and not hear anything back from them if you don't stay active."
"The social environment is open and it's possible to find many friends from different cultural backgrounds and cultures. There are plenty of societies and clubs."
"The sports teams are good and there's a lovely new sports hall and gym. The drama and feminist societies are also good but the uni could do with a few more societies."
"The social environment is nice and it's easy to settle in."
"There are a lot of social events where you can enjoy any sport you can think of. I personally attend the City University social badminton event along with friends every Friday."
"There are lots of societies and sporting clubs to join."
"There are lots of sports clubs and it's a very friendly environment. We're provided with a lot of high-quality sports facilities and equipment."
"There are lots of things going on but it's very easy to miss due to lack of advertising. Info isn't circulated by the uni as much as it could be."
"The social environment is OK, but you're not likely to meet too many new people. I'm not too sure about sports clubs but the gym looks really good. I do attend social badmintons held at a subsidised rate."
