Joining a society whilst at university is a great opportunity to make friends and experience something new! Here at Bristol SU we have over 330 different clubs, sports and societies. Whatever your interests, our societies can cater to you. And if not, you can even start one up yourself!


To give you an idea of the immense range of opportunities on offer, we’ve selected a few of our most unusual societies.


  1. Pokémon Trainer Society


Do you want to be the very best, like no one ever was? If the answer is yes, then Pokémon Training Society may be the society for you. The society welcomes both casual fans and those who know their Pichu from their Vulpix. Explore your interest in Pokémon whilst card collecting, trading, drinking, berry blending and film watching. Let your social life and your Pokémon evolve with this society.

Muggles do not fear, you don’t need to be a wizard to join this society. Quidditch is the fastest-growing mixed gender, full contact sport in the world. Although the Bristol team competes regularly with teams across the UK, they welcome curious new members who are interested in just having fun in sport. So grab your broomstick and try to catch that golden snitch.

Don’t let yourself become zombie fodder when the day of the dead arrives. Refine your survival skills at one of our most unusual societies. The society prepares members for the impending apocalypse through simulations (Human vs. Zombie games) and also against each other (Human vs. Human games) to improve your teamwork, accuracy and planning skills. In other words they like messing about with nerf stuff and want you to join in!
