Come to Communist University 2024 running from Saturday August 3 to Saturday August 10!

What is Communist University?

CU is different from the run-of-the-mill schools put on by other left groups, in that plenty of time is allocated to contributions from the floor. Controversial debate is positively welcomed and, needless to say, there are no one-minute time limits. Moreover, critical thinking is encouraged, as can be seen by our impressive list of speakers each and every year.

If you want to have an idea of the wide array of subjects discussed at CU? You’re in luck! You can view our extensive video archive, covering our schools since 2008, over at our video archive.

On top of that, there is the possibility to spend the entire week in our accommodations where you’ll share in camaraderie and the communally prepared meals with communists from the United Kingdom and abroad! Furthermore, we end each CU with our Summer Offensive Meal, an extravagant ending of our annual three-month Summer Offensive fund drive.
