Start a new Society

AberSU has a lot of societies to choose from, however, have you got an interest that you don't feel is currently being catered for?


Try starting your own society! Or check out the list of vacant societies down below.


With support every step of the way, we are always keen for new societies to join Team Aber. To get started fill in the “New Club/Society” form on the Team Aber Resource Hub.


For more information contact your Student Opportunities Officer, Wojtek ( or visit us in the Opportunities Office.
