Societies and Volunteering

Aside from the more than 400 clubs and societies affiliated with the central University for students of all interests to get involved with, Lincoln boasts a rich extracurricular life with a large number of societies and volunteering opportunities for Lincoln students.

For those who wish to get involved with the musical aspect of College life, the Choir is one of the finest mixed-voice chapel choirs in the University. They sing in the weekly Evensong service, as well as at major College events and days in the church calendar. Also, they regularly travel on tours, most recently to New York, enriching their exciting schedule.

Each February, Lincoln teams up with Jesus and Exeter to create the week-long Turl Street Arts Festival, comprising of plays, concerts, workshops, and an end-of-week ball. This arty week is always a highlight in the College calendar, with a huge number of students getting involved.

Otherwise, we have more general societies, from the extremely popular and active Law Society, to the Politics Society and Music Society. All Lincoln clubs are supported by the College, and provide a great opportunity for undergraduates and graduates to get to know each other in a non-academic environment. Whether you want to find a group of people who share your faith, interests, or simply want to try something new, there will no doubt be an opportunity for you to do so at Lincoln.

Lincoln also has a fantastic reputation for its charity work and there are ample opportunities to volunteer with local charities such as Turl Street Homeless Action and the Oxford Winter Night Shelter. Lincoln has its own long-running charity, VacProj, which takes disadvantaged children from Oxfordshire on an annual holiday.

There are societies for everything: sports, choirs, politics, ceilidhs, student newspapers… there’s apparently even a society dedicated just to Star Trek, so really – you name it, we probably have it!
