University of Nottingham Caving Club

Location: The University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD.

We are a welcoming, active club for those inclined to go adventuring underground. We travel the UK to explore amazing cave systems, have regular training and social evenings and have longer trips away in the holidays! You don’t need any experience and we’d love to have you on board.

Caving is a rare opportunity to mingle and make great friends with students at Universities across the UK. We often run joint weekend trips with University clubs such as Sheffield and Leeds and all University clubs are joined by the Council of Higher Education Caving Clubs (CHECC). This is a great resource for training and accumulating caving knowledge but an even greater one for socialising. Every year we attend the CHECC forum, where (almost) all the University clubs from across the country gather to meet and cave. This has many training opportunities, lectures, lots of socialising and chances to go caving with different people. There’s also Northern CHECC, a similar, smaller event held later in the year for northern caving clubs.

All current students at the University of Nottingham are welcome to join, as well as associate members of the Students’ Union. To join you can either visit our stand at the Freshers’ or Refreshers’ Fairs, go to the reception in Student Activities in the Portland building on University Park, or go to our page on the Student Union website and join online.
