Most of the vacancies we have at the Volunteering Services Unit can be done in a few hours a week, and we have lots of one-off events you can try out. However, for those of you with a bit more time to spare, and who really want to immerse yourself in the world of volunteering, we do offer more substantial opportunities.
Pi Media society and Film society have launched Pi TV, UCLU’s first form of student television! With programmes ranging from comedy chat shows with UCLU society presidents to backstage looks at upcoming student productions to news briefs from around campus, it’s well worth a look! Pi TV can be found on Pi Media’s website at www.pimedia.org.uk/category/pi-tv
Ever wanted to make your own film?
Would you like the opportunity to learn the skills of documentary film making? Would you like to be fully funded to undertake a 2 week course on developing, producing, shooting and editing a short documentary?
The university is looking for students from diverse backgrounds to make a short film about their experiences at UCL. We particularly want to find out what it’s like studying here if you’re a British student from a black or minority ethnic group.
Not ones to let the latest craze to flood the internetz pass by without a valid Gower Street contribution, UCL students took over the Quad today at lunchtime to particpate in their own version of the “Harlem Shake” meme.
Hundreds…no, thousands…no, maybe even millions…(maybe not millions) of students jumped around in costumes (they were costumes, right?) to the now-infamous tune created by electronic musician Baauer.
So, were you there?

For the second year running, RAG are organising the most exciting event of the year in the quad… bungee jump!
We’re hiring in a 50ft crane which will be positioned within the quad for people to bungee jump from! It literally is the experience of a lifetime.. Last year over 100 people took the challenge and jumped 150ft into the quad, fancy a go?
