Start Your Own

The SU accommodates for two types of groups. These are:


Clubs that compete in various sporting competitions and leagues representing Royal Holloway


Groups based on common interests or activities ranging from Dance to Sustainability


If you have a unique and popular idea to start up a new sports club or society on campus, you can apply to the Students’ Union for ratification.

It can be a very rewarding experience to successfully establish a student group. Even though the process may seem daunting, don't be discouraged if you think your idea is worthwhile!


There are many benefits for a sports club or society of being affiliated to the Students' Union. These include:

  • Advertising
  • Finance & Funding
  • Insurance & Administrative Support
  • Access to Rooms & Facilities
  • Experience & Training
  • Accreditation and Awards
