Joining a club or society at Queen's is the perfect opportunity to meet new people, keep up your interest in a passion or, even better, to find a brand new one you never knew you had!
With over 200 clubs, all of them student-led, there's something for everyone. See the full A-Z list of clubs.
If you're worried its all about football and rugby then fear not; Queen's has an incredibly diverse list of sports clubs available to join. In fact we have 10 combat sport clubs alone, including Brazilian Ju Jitsu, Aikido, Wado Ryu (it's a form of karate!) and good old fashioned boxing.
If team sports are more your thing then you're in luck. Queen's has teams in soccer, rugby, basketball and hockey for both men and women. On top of that there are clubs for all gaelic sports, including Gaelic Football (Men and Ladies'), Hurling, Camogie and Handball.
I found the Camogie team at Queen's very inclusive and welcoming. No matter where you are; Belfast, Cork or Abu Dhabi, playing always brings that homely feeling which is greatly appreciated when starting off in a new place like university. - Cornelia Hawkes, Medicine, Ireland
