How to Start a New Club

If you can't find a club that grabs your fancy, why not start your own? Find out more by emailing with any questions you may have, or by viewing the registration form itself (which goes into all the finer details), HERE

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.

Please note that club registrations are only accepted within designated “registration periods” each semester, as follows:

Semester One 2018 Club Intake Period
27 November 2017 – 23 March 2018

Semester Two 2018 Club Intake Period
25 June 2018 - 24 August 2018

If you have missed the cut-off for the most recent registration period, you will need to reapply in the following registration period.
