Welcome to the website of Reading University Conservative Association.

RUCA is one of the UK’s leading conservative organisations for students and the largest of all student societies at the University of Reading. Membership is free and is open to any undergraduate or postgraduate currently enrolled at the University.

Our mission is to further the development of members’ own political ideas and to promote the conservative cause within the University. Our weekly programme provides members with opportunities to challenge their political understanding, meet leading conservative politicians of the day, and be introduced to the Conservative network nationwide.

Our events typically include casual drinks or a standing receptions with visiting politicians, topical discussion evenings, formal dinners and visits to political conferences. You don’t have to be a party member or have particularly hard-line views to join us – all shades of blue are welcome!

Membership is FREE for undergraduate and postgraduate students currently enrolled at Reading University. We offer Associate Membership to non-students.
