Under the United Grand Lodge of England Universities' Scheme, Ruislip St Martin's Lodge has developed a close link with Brunel University. The association has developed through the Lodge's support for the University's medical and technical research projects.
We hope that the new members from all over the country will be able to gain a similar sense of inspiration, fulfilment and enjoyment.
WHAT WE DO
We help prospective Masons to combine a successful university life with great opportunities to become a Freemason.
As we understand the implications of studying at uni, flexibility is at the core of our meetings and events.
Experience other Freemasons lodges as a visitor, or join an event where you will find a diverse environment that will enrich your personal, social and philosophical interactions. Your options are limitless.
It was nearly 200 years ago that the first university Lodge, Apollo University Lodge, was founded at Oxford, with Isaac Newton University Lodge following soon afterwards at Cambridge. Since then many thousands of young men have been introduced to Freemasonry through these two Lodges, and they provided the inspiration for the Universities Scheme. This was set up at the beginning of 2005 with the objective: ‘To establish and/or enhance arrangements and opportunities for undergraduates and other university members to enjoy Freemasonry’.
There are now 83 other Lodges pursuing a similar, yet distinct, course. Their membership consists of undergraduates, postgraduates, senior members of the university and alumni, ranging in age from 18 upwards. All under-25s benefit from the recent decision by Grand Lodge to halve their dues in order to make Freemasonry as accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
