We exist to celebrate the culture and history of the classical world, with members from departments across the university sharing our love of all things Greek and Roman. We seek to bring the department and university together and provide a welcoming space for students across Royal Holloway to collaborate and thrive, whether you are on campus or at home. We welcome students from all backgrounds, regardless of your degree choice.


We also hold weekly socials and welcome any newcomers, regardless of their knowledge of the classical world. One of our aims is to highlight how the Classics continue to be relevant today, yet this is not our sole focus; we provide a space for you to meet friendly, like-minded people who enjoy socializing and being actively engaged in university life opportunities provides. We focus on both the academic and the social, holding both academic sessions for our members to expand and develop their knowledge of the classical world, and social events to meet people who share the same passion for the Greek and Roman world, and beyond. Our established Discord server allows you to communicate with not only the committee to find out where and what our weekly socials will be, but is also home to a thriving online community of people who love the Classics. The server is open to all and can be joined through the following link!

Membership Fee & Costs 

£5 Standard Membership Fee, which allows entry to all our social events and discounted tickets to several large events throughout the year



The society holds official socials for both members and non-members once a week on a Wednesday evening. Our socials tend to be relaxing nights where we do activities like watch classically themed films, play games, and have fun in each other’s company. On occasion, there will be weekend socials, which will be a bit more adventurous, as either a day of activities, such as trips to the British Museum and beyond, or themed parties or drinks night. We have an open mind and are happy to arrange a wide variety of socials and greatly value input and ideas from our members. So please do put forward any suggestions!
