A chance to find your uni family

From K-Pop to canoeing, dodgeball to Disney - we're bound to have something that interests you.
But if not, that's no problem - start your own. Any current University of Plymouth student can start their own group and create their own community of students with shared interests.

Be part of something bigger than yourself, give back to your local community and join our incredible volunteering community

Not only does volunteering enable you to develop skills and increase your confidence, knowledge and experience - but it's also a great way to meet new people and find your Uni family.

Peer to peer support

Sign up for the UPSU Buddy Scheme

Navigate student life with the support of another student

The Buddy Scheme is designed to be very informal – it’s just a chance to meet someone new, boost your wellbeing and combat loneliness through the peer to peer support offered by a student just like you.

If you’re looking for someone to meet for a coffee, to try a new sporting or cultural activity with or just to have a chat with (in person or virtually), then sign up as a participant in the UPSU Buddy Scheme.
