Philosophers of London in Solidarity, or POLIS, is a network  of London philosophy societies set up in 2018. It currently has eight members: Birkbeck, Dead Philosophers Society (SOAS), KCL, LSE, NCH, Royal Holloway, UAL, and UCL.

POLIS acts both as a meeting place for these societies and as a network which expands the reach of its members. We hold regular socials which allows students to mix with others that they might not have otherwise, and promote the events and activities of the member societies. Philosophy students have the opportunity to engage with the broadest array of the field’s elements as possible and have fun whilst they do it!

In short, POLIS is a student led network of University of London philosophy societies and groups which seeks to draw links between the many philosophy students in the city, both academically and socially.
