Clubs and societies at Goodenough College

Goodenough College is a place where the enthusiastic exchange of ideas and sharing of common interests is central to everyday life. The Clubs and Societies created and run by our Members widen horizons, enhance academic studies and are often the starting point of lasting friendships formed with like-minded people. 

Members are actively encouraged to take part in an array of cultural and social activities. We are always willing to work with Members to create new Clubs and Societies, funded by the College, which reflect their own talents and interests.


Goodenough College’s focus on all-round development was pivotal in shaping my leadership and professional journey. The College experience, from intellectually stimulating port talks to organising East Asia week to producing a Goodenough Voices of the Commonwealth youth song album with the Commonwealth Secretariat, is unparalleled in central London.
