We've answered some of your most commonly asked questions.

What is a Society? ↓

A Society at SHSU is a group of students that share a similar passion, interest or hobby. Societies provide a chance to meet similar students to you, and take part in the things you love. Joining a Society is also the perfect chance to try something new!

Where can I find a list of all societies? ↓

Visit our full list of Societies and click on any that take your interest where you can see information about them, their contact details, links to their social media and information on joining.

How do I join a Society? ↓

To join a Society, simply login to our website with your SHU login and choose which Society membership you wish to purchase. Click through to the checkout, where you can pay any membership fee and fill in your details. Even if the society doesn't charge a fee, you still need to 'purchase' a membership through the website - you just won't have to pay any money.

I joined a Society but haven't heard from them ↓

You should contact the Society to find out when they will next be meeting. Each Society should have contact details on their web pages.

I have concerns about how a society is being run ↓

If you have any concerns about one of the Students’ Union Societies, please contact a member of SHSU Staff directly at activitiesadmin@shu.ac.uk

I can't find the right society for me ↓

Why not set up your own Society! All you need is a great idea and ten interested students. If you have any questions, just contact us at activitiesadmin@shu.ac.uk.
