Clubs and Societies

Joining a club or society is a great way to meet people with similar interests, try out something new or pursue your passion.

University life is more than just study. It is also about experiences and friendships. We encourage students to join at least one club or society and with over 70 to choose from, we have something for everyone.


University life is also about having fun and making friends. Clubs and societies play a big role in this, and we encourage all students to join at least one. It can often be the start of a new passion or a lifelong friendship.


There are over 70 clubs and societies to choose from. These cover everything from archaeology to aikido and gaming to golf. Also, new clubs and societies are formed every year which means you can even start your own.


Our clubs and societies day is held early in the college year. This is an opportunity to sign up to as many of them as you like. A dedicated clubs and societies webpage lists the activities taking place each week and has direct contact information for each club and society. ATU Sligo subsidise clubs and societies so that they are free to join, as are most of the activities they offer.
