Clubs and Societies at Queen's

Discover the world of Clubs and Societies at Queen's.


Argue your point with the Literific Debating Society, make a change with Amnesty QUB, or stand up for our planet with Green at Queen's. If politics is more your passion, you'll find Societies from right across the spectrum for you to join here on campus. Or, you could develop your fundraising and campaigning skills with Societies such as Belfast Marrow, Friends of Médecins San Frontières, or Cavaliers in Need (extra bonus: puppy petting days!).


Meet fellow anime and game-lovers at the Dragonslayers Society, and flex those competitive muscles on our all-new Esports team. If you're more of a movie buff, the Film Society is for you! You could even go behind the scenes and become Belfast's next broadcasting star on Queen's Radio, or find your artistic aesthetic at the Photographic Society.


Travel the world... without ever leaving campus! Practice a new language, sample some tasty global cuisine, and immerse yourself in culture at the Spanish and Portuguese Society, the Hellenic Society, and bien sûr our wonderful French Society.

“Our annual ski trip is often quoted by members as “the best holiday of my life”. If you’re a keen or newbie skier, it’s a chance to develop a new skill, see a beautiful part of the world, and get to know students from across Queen’s.”
