SUOTC has one of the busiest and most varied social scenes in the area.
Social events are seen as a way of educating cadets in Mess etiquette, and to give them a taste of life in a Regular Army Officers' Mess.
The Officer Cadets have their own Mess with a Bar that is certainly among the cheapest in Southampton.
It is open during social events and after training on Tuesday nights. Some of the key events each year include:
- Spring Dinner Night
- Sportsmen's' Dinner Night
- Autumn Dinner Night
- Christmas Ball
