History Society

The History Society is here to fulfil your social and educational needs during your three years at the University of Southampton.

Use this page to stay in touch with your fellow historians and keep up to date with those all-important social events. The History Society runs a wide array of activities from pub-crawls, quizzes and balls.

We will keep updated on all of the society's events via this Facebook group, as well as other social media pages which will be linked below.

By following them all, it will be impossible for you to miss out! Within the society you can also engage in our sports teams and trips abroad! Our sports teams include Badminton, Football and Netball – if interested please message either one of the Sports Representatives or the relevant social media pages which is all linked below.

The tour will be organised by Finn Procter (Secretary) this year and he will provide information at a later date. The society can also be your link with the history department itself. Let us know what you think of course content, resources and teaching quality! Everything will be reported back to lecturers to make sure your opinion is heard.

Don’t hesitate to drop any committee member (or this page) a message… we will be happy to help! Alternatively, feedback for the department can be sent towards course representatives for each year group, or Aaron Marchant (History Academic President).

About History Society

Membership Fee Information

These are the current membership fees offered by History Society, although many clubs and societies offer a free period for new members to try out their activities.

NameCostValid PeriodDetailsJoin
Year Membership£520/09/2019 - 01/07/2020Membership to join HistSoc is a one-off payment which lasts the entirety of the year. Upon purchasing membership, one will receive a HistSoc Membership Card, which has all the details about the fantastic deals and offers which the membership provides. These deals are vast and varied; ranging from nightclubs and bars at subsidised prices, cheaper deals at food establishments such as Pizza Hut and Subway, or money-off your haircuts at Jays Barbers. The pricing of the Membership Card, £5, means that students effectively 'earn' their money back after one visit to Oceana, for example, (our membership card entitles the owner to free entry before 12pm- saving £4). Membership also entitles members to saving money at our biggest socials throughout the year too, with subsidised prices for our biggest social, The Orange Army Pub Crawl.Buy Now
