College events

Students, staff and alumni of Southlands College take part in a large number of events and activities, which help to make the college a special place to live and to work.

Throughout the year, special events – from small film nights in The Reef to whole-college celebration dinners – will be advertised to our members by email, on Facebook, by Twitter and on posters throughout our public spaces. Make sure to follow the Facebook page "Southlands College" and join the group "Southlands Shiver of Sharks".

For an idea of the kinds of events that take place during the year, scroll down on this page and also take a look at some of our photo archives, including the Facebook page "Southlands Snaps".
