Welcome to the website of the Reading University Conservative Association

The Reading University Conservative Association (RUCA) is one of the largest political societies for young people in Berkshire and one of the leading conservative organisations for students in the UK. Membership is free for all students 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 of course to make friends with like-minded people!

Our events typically include casual drinks at the various pubs and bars across campus and in reading, as well as the infamous Mojos pub quiz! We also hold topical discussions about current political happenings (usually accompanied by pizza). Across the year there will also be the opportunity to meet a range of politicians from cabinet members to backbenchers though private society and local association events.
