Communities and clubs

31 August 2023

UC has more than a hundred student-run clubs and organisations that reflect the diverse range of artistic, cultural, social, and recreational pursuits in our campus community. Discover communities and clubs at UC that will help you enjoy your passions and find others who share them.


UC has the biggest club culture of any university in New Zealand, offering a vibrant student experience.

From academic and cultural to sport, food, gaming, and more, there are over 150 clubs and societies that you can join or participate in – and if there isn’t already one that covers your interest, it’s easy to start your own!

Each club provides a wide variety of opportunities, including volunteering, community projects, internships, road trips, and social activities.

The University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA) also holds a range of free and ticketed events on campus year-round, including concerts, barbeques, and the legendary Tea Party.
