Clubs and societies

The global cafe

Leeds has one of the largest students’ unions in the country. Leeds University Union (LUU) exists to represent, support and entertain you throughout your student years. The union has over 250 activities to choose from – you can get involved in anything from football to chess, wine tasting to skydiving, dance to ‘a cappella’. You can even try your hand at Quidditch! Through the Global Community you can connect with students from over 140 different countries and take part in a range of international activities.

Maths Society

The Maths Society is open to all students with an interest in maths.

Here’s an overview of what the society does and the activities and events they run.

What is Maths Society?

We are Leeds University Union Maths Society, and our job is to make sure you love your time as a student at Leeds. The society brings together students from all years that want to take an interest in maths, whether this is through your course or extracurricular activities. Anyone is free to join, whether attached to the School of Mathematics or not, and the main function of the society is to allow like-minded people to meet up and have fun. Every mathematician needs to let off steam sometimes!

What activities and events take place?

We have career-related events across the year, opportunities to get to know your course mates and lots of exciting opportunities to get involved in sports teams. We also hold a number of socials throughout the year including a geek-themed Otley Run, a Christmas Ball and the infamous weekend trip away to a European city.
