Societies

Joining a society is one of the best ways to get more out of your time at LSE . The Students’ Union has over 150 societies covering a wide range of activities from the serious and prestigious, to the light-hearted and fun. With such a huge and diverse number of groups there really is something for everyone! Societies cost from as little as £1.50 to join; please note memberships are non-refundable. Sign up online, at the Freshers’ Fair, or in the Activities Resource Centre (ARC) above the Quad (current opening hours are 10am-4pm).
