START A CLUB

If you can't find a club that grabs your fancy, why not start your own?

Find out more by emailing clubs@guild.curtin.edu.au with any questions you may have, or by viewing the New Club Expression of Interest form. Lodging an EOI form is the first step in the process of creating a new club or society at Curtin. Clubs who successfully register with the Guild are able to access a bunch of great entitlements; including grants, free on-campus 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 our Run Your Club page!

Registration Periods

Club registrations are only accepted within designated “registration periods” each semester, as follows:

  • Semester One 2019 Club Intake Period: 26 November 2018 – 22 March 2019

  • Semester Two 2019 Club Intake Period: 24 June 2019 - 23 August 2019

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

What Are The Requirements?

For a new club or society to be considered, it must:

  • Be wholly run by Curtin students, for the benefit of Curtin students;
  • Enhance the student experience;
  • Demonstrate sufficient student demand for its formation; and
  • Cater to a specific topic, group, or interest that is not adequately represented by an existing club.

An outline of the full registration requirements for new clubs can be viewed in the Guild Clubs Charter.

All club approvals and rejections are ultimately subject to the discretion of the Guild Executive Council. Club applications are reviewed by the Guild Executive Council at their weekly meetings, and prospective clubs are contacted by the Clubs Officer via email with the result of their application within three weeks.

Application Process
 

 
STEP 1: Lodge your New Club Expression of Interest (EOI) form. The EOI form collects initial information about your proposed club which will be used to assess your application.
STEP 2: The Clubs Officer and Guild Executive Committee will review your club's expression of interest, and you'll be advised of the outcome via email. If accepted, your club will be placed on "pre-approval" status. Congrats - you're now halfway there!
STEP 3: Pre-approved clubs will then need complete a Stage 2 Club Registration Form, in which you must provide additional administrative details (i.e. provide club bank account details, club email address, undertake food safety training, create social media accounts, etc.). You will have up to 28 days in which to complete the Stage Two registration requirements for your pre-approved club. 
STEP 4: Once the Stage Two Registration Form has been completely properly and returned, your club will obtain full approval. This will be communicated via email. Your club will be added to the official club listing on the Guild website, and you will now have access to all club entitlements, resources, and support. Welcome aboard!
