College Life at Southlands College

Members of Southlands, whether they live on site or off-campus, can get involved in a huge range of activities. The college is particularly keen to support students in leading events and campaigns themselves. Amongst other special activities, we are home to a large volunteer programme called the Southlands Venture and we are the hub for the music performance activities of the university. Our Southlands College Community Leaders (SCCLs) play a huge part in the many activities which are hosted at Southlands. You can find them in the College Community Hub, QB010.

We want you to take part in the life of the college and will do all we can to welcome you and your ideas for shaping our community in the coming year. Our team of staff and student leaders would love to hear from anyone wanting to get involved in running and participating in college campaigns, events and activities. Make sure you get in touch with Lewis Redfern, College Engagement and Activities Officer, if you would like to get involved in shaping the activities at Southlands this year.
