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.


"There are a lot of societies and the sports club is especially active."
"There are plenty of them around if there's something of interest to you such as sports, meditation/spirituality and activist groups etc."
"There are quite a few good societies available for anyone to join. There are many sports ones as well as academic ones and religious ones. You're also free to create your own society if you want to."
"There's a wide selection of clubs and societies within the university, such as American football, football, basketball, netball, hockey and rugby teams as well as societies linked to various schools within the university."


"The university loves its sports and has a few teams; the Paisley Pyros and the UWS Foxes to name a couple. The university dedicates time for everyone to pursue sports. This is usually Wednesday afternoons."
"There seems to be a decent selection of clubs and societies on offer."
"Societies are not well advertised and it can be hard to find people to talk to about them."
"There's free court hire and a gym that is run well by the people who work there."
"Clubs and societies aren't well marketed. There are some good clubs and sports groups but we never hear about them and it can be difficult to find out how to join."
