Clubs are your gateway to the social side of uni - a great way to network, meet new people, and get involved with awesome events! We have academic, special interest, religious, issues-based, and international clubs - so check out the categories below to find one (or ten) that suit you!
Remember to use your $5 Clubs Vouchers (provided when activating your 2016 Guild membership) to offset any joining fees!
Starting A New Club
If you can't find a club that grabs your fancy, why not start your own? Find out more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have, or by viewing the Club Registration Form itself, which outlines the registration requirements in detail.
Clubs who successfully register with the Guild are able to access a bunch of great entitlements; including grants, venue hire, BBQ use, sponsorship, promotional support, poster access, a stall at major Guild events (such as O-Day), and much more! For the full list of perks, check out Resources for Clubs.
Club registrations are open across two designated "registration periods" each semester, as follows:
Semester One Intake Period: 28th November 2016 - 24th March 2017
Semester Two Intake Period: 26th June 2017 - 25th August 2017
If you miss the cut-off for a particular registration period, you will need to wait until the next registration period to re-apply.
