Societies

Societies are the heart and soul of student life at LSE, and becoming a member is the best way to get more out of your time at university. We have more than 200+ societies at LSESU, with thousands of students being members. 

Societies are groups of students who share a common interest and provide opportunities for you to meet new people, pick up skills for later life and have fun while you do it. Best of all, they are entirely student-led! 

Whether you're looking to take up a new hobby or want to keep up an existing interest, there is something for everyone – from academic and political endeavours to celebrating culture, as well as more lighthearted interests such as music, dance and games. i
