RCA SU Clubs & Societies

RCASU Clubs and Societies are student-led and student-run groups that pursue a diverse range of activities, which both elaborate on and take place outside of the academic programmes.

Societies are social groups formed around certain aims or subjects of interest, usually organising workshops, lectures, seminars, outings, or simply social events.

Clubs are groups that undertake sporting, exercise, and other physical activities.

Both Clubs and societies give the RCA community a place to mix, play & experiment, as well as work.

Additionally Societies get a £250 plus support from the SU officers and promotional help from our events co-ordinator.

For any of the above and beyond, download and fill out the New Club or Society Setup Form.

Send it to students-union@rca.ac.uk so will set up a meeting with you to discuss budget allocation and planned activities throughout the year.
