Clubs and societies
Part of the DCU student experience is about making friends for life while developing or discovering new interests, and our clubs and societies play a huge part in this. We offer many sports clubs at DCU, catering not only to the more competitive sportsperson, but also for beginners and those who want to enjoy sport as a recreational activity.
Our diverse range of societies will help you broaden your horizons and meet like-minded individuals. Whatever you’re into, from Archery, to Harry Potter, to Yoga - there is something for everyone!Find out more
