It's a great year to join a new club or society


During your time at Staffs, you have the opportunity to get involved with any number of societies to match your interests, or even start new ones. On this page, you can browse all of the different student led clubs and societies, and join up so you can start getting involved.


This past year, our sports teams have had a change in infrastructure, meaning the University is now providing better development and coaching for all players. We’re now building a new winning culture at Staff and you can be a part of it.

We have loads of sports here, everything from Football and Netball to Ultimate Frisbee and Pole Dancing, so see what takes your fancy below and make sure your come to the Welcome Fair and Sports Trials to be a part of Team Staffs.

Dance & Cheerleading

The Robot. Body Popping. Saturday Night Fever. If you're into your dance, then joining one of these clubs is for you. There's always Cheerleading or Pole arts if you're not that boogie-inclined.

Extreme Sports

Far out. If adrenaline is your forte and you consider yourself a bit extreme, take a look at what we've got on offer from Kayaking all the way to Skydiving. We can't promise you won't get a little nervous.

  • Mountaineering Club

    SUMC: Staffs Uni Mountaineering Club can teach you the skills to enjoy rock climbing, hiking and much more! We have climbing and walking trips with experienced leaders, and sessions on our uni wall!

Indoor Sports

Fancy yourself as the next Kobe Bryant or Ronnie O'Sullivan? We have a number of Indoor Sports, from Basketball to Cue Sports. There's a range of things you can do indoors at Staffs, so get involved.

Martial Arts

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Walk out into the Octagon and hear the roar of the crowd. If you fancy yourself as a big shot in UFC's future, check out our Martial Arts clubs.

Outdoor Sports

The Great Outdoors. Being exposed to the elements. Playing football in the rain. Playing golf in the wind. We've got a wide range of outdoor sports for you to sink your teeth into.

Racket Sports

Fill the gap between Wimbledon each year by becoming the number one player on campus, or take up Badminton, or Table Tennis. The choice is yours.

Water Sports

Michael Phelps has nothing on you. If you feel more at home in the water than you do on land, then Water Sports might be something for you. It's also a great way to keep fit during term time.

  • Swimming Club

    The swim team at Staffs Uni welcomes swimmers of all abilities, organises socials outside the sport and offers training to improve skills and speed.


Societies are student run groups that offer students the opportunity to continue their hobbies, learn new skills, meet like-minded people and get the most out of your Staffs experience.

Societies are one of the best ways to open yourself up to new opportunities, gain new skills and maybe even learn more about yourself.


Education makes the world turn. Academic Societies are a great way to meet people with similar interests and make sure your CV looks great in terms of extra-curricular activities.

Activities & Games

Faith & Religion

Just like culture, feeling at one with your faith is important. These societies give you the chance to meet people who share your faith and feel at home. Once again though, you don't have to be a part of the faith to join.
