Welcome to the Association of Inter-Varsity Clubs
IVC groups exist to provide social, recreational and cultural opportunities for professionals and like minded people across the UK. There are 41 groups throughout the UK with around 4,000 members in total.
All AIVC member groups are voluntary organisations that are run by the members for the members on a not-for-profit basis.
Each IVC Club is autonomous which allows the members in that club to run it in ways that suit that club. AIVC (Association of IVC Clubs) exists to allow clubs to co-operate and support each other.
Although all IVCs are run on broadly the same lines they do have variations in joining requirements and procedures.
To find your nearest IVC go to the "Club Contact List" in the home menu.
Once you've found IVCs that you might be interested in joining you should visit their web site and ask them about their IVC and how you can best join up and start having more fun!

The Regional gathering hosted by Leicester IVC is an opportunity to meet and socialise with IVCers from around the country as well as to discuss issues affecting IVC & meet members of the committee. Lunch and hot drinks will be provided. You do not need to be a member of your committee to attend, all members of an associated IVC club are welcome.
The gathering will be followed by a visit to the King Richard IIIrd centre & Leicester Cathedral. There will be a chinese buffet meal in the evening. To book for any of these events please log in to the website.
