University of Brighton

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.


"We are a sports campus so there are many societies and sports clubs to join. There are three main nights out a week and they are often busy but not always. There is something going on all of the time somewhere."
"The social environment is very good. I am not part of any clubs or societies but I do know that they have socials every week and it's a popular thing for those involved. The university has a rivalry with Sussex University and they hold a varsity tournament each year that brings everyone together for a really great day."
"There are lots of societies but make sure you join the ones around your campus if possible as they're pretty far apart."
"At the beginning of the year we had international week, which allowed new students to meet and interact with different students on various courses. It was fun getting to know loads of people during this week."
"There are many clubs and societies. I'm part of the pharmacy society, which is really active and always has something going on! Just enjoy university life as much as you can and make the most of it."
"There's tons to do in Brighton. Whether you're into socialising in societies or doing physical activities such as ju-jitsu, cycling or many other sports, Brighton is a very active place."
"Some of the sport clubs may not be on your campus so every time you go to training you'll have to take a train or bus to get there."
"There are lots of sports clubs available and I even took up cheerleading. I don't really know of many specific societies but we do have Parklife, where you can casually play sports or do things like bouldering, Quidditch and glow-in-the-dark volleyball!"
"I have only used the gym facilities in Brighton and Eastbourne. If you are a member, you can use them all. The one in Eastbourne has a swimming pool as well. Various classes are also included in the very cheap membership."
"During my first year there was a student fair and the amount of societies and clubs etc go on forever! There is something for everyone if you're into charities, sports, travelling, culture etc."
