Starting a vegetarian group or society at university or college

Why start a student vegetarian group? 

  • To provide an opportunity for socialising with like-minded people within your university’s community. 

  • To support new students who may be cooking for themselves – or trying a vegetarian or vegan diet – for the first time. A vegetarian group can help with information, advice and support.

  • To provide accurate information about vegetarianism and all the issues it encompasses, such as animal welfare, the environment, healthy eating, and world food resources. If your university or college is based in the UK, the Vegetarian Society can supply you with free leaflets and posters to raise awareness and encourage debate.

  • To encourage the caterers and shops at your university, and in the town where your university is based, to provide more and better vegetarian choices.

  • To promote vegetarian points of view on campus and in your university’s wider community.
