As a Chester student, you are automatically a member of the Chester Students’ Union (CSU).

CSU is all about improving your experience at university, through social, wellbeing and society activities, and through representing the student voice in decisions that are made.

2019 has brought big changes for CSU, with a newly refurbished student space, more visibility of the appointed CSU officers, and the introduction of the Athletics Union.

Chester Students’ Union

Welcome Week has flown by, and hopefully you had a chance to see your very own CSU in action! Whether that be in their Zorb Football event or at the Freshers and Activities Fairs.

If not, why don’t you head over to main campus and check out the Students’ Union for yourself. 

Chester has over 130 sports clubs and societies, meaning there is something for everyone. Sports and Societies are all student-led and coordinated by an elected committee for the academic year.

Societies at Chester

Societies at Chester are run by the Students’ Union and, with dozens to choose from, there’s plenty to keep you busy outside of your studies.

If you’re looking to develop an existing hobby, try something completely new or just meet like-minded individuals, then you’ve come to the right place.

From course-based societies to societies celebrating culture

And Disney

And Chester Student Dog Walkers…who doesn’t love dogs?

Sports at Chester

New to the 2019/20 academic year, all sports will be managed by the new University of Chester Athletics Union. This means more money for training, coaches, travel and more support.

Whether you’re interested in American Football

Or if Ultimate Frisbee is more your thing

There’s a range of sports teams that our students can join. We even have a Quidditch team!

So, no matter your interests, there’s something for you! And if not? Why not consider starting your own society.

Send us your photos of your clubs and societies by using the hashtag #MyChesterStory and tagging @uochester. We’ll share our favourites!
