Clubs and societies

Caius has students with a very wide range of interests. Currently, there are around 45 clubs and societies to choose from, including sports, music, politics, poker, chess and pool. All are free to join and open to beginners.

The student-run drama society, the Shadwell Society, stages regular productions in the College Auditorium and gardens, as well as other major student drama venues around Cambridge. Recent productions include Timon of Athens and Yo My Man, a play written by a member of the society.

In the unlikely event that there’s no group for your particular interest, you could start one for yourself. Just find a few like-minded people and there’s a good chance that the College will support you by providing a venue or funding.
