Joining a club or society is what being a uni student is all about! They are where you’ll find the tight-knit friendship group that you’ll keep in touch with your entire life, or the professional network that you’ll lean on throughout your career.

From social, sporting, cultural, and academic opportunities, our clubs and societies are as vibrant and diverse as the people who study here.

How to start a club or society

To start a new club you can either reinvent a pre-loved club or start from scratch with a new idea.

Start a new club

Want to start fresh with a new idea?

If you still haven’t found what you’re looking for, then it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get creative. The new clubs process lets you turn your original idea into a reality. Every UNE Life club that currently exists, or has existed in the past, started off exactly like this; with a great idea and some passionate people!

You can create a club in 5 easy steps:
1. Registering with UNE Life
2. Hosting an Annual General Meeting.
3. Discussing Finances & Marketing.
4. Opening a Bank Account.
5. Finalising some Details in a meeting with UNE Life.

Revamp a pre-loved club

What are pre-loved clubs?

If you’re into thrifting, consider trying our pre-loved clubs on for size! Pre-loved clubs are exactly what they sound like; clubs and societies that are looking for a new home. Depending on the club you’re interested in, you might find that a lot of the materials needed for it to function have already been prepared, and there could even be funds left over from the previous owners.

Have a look at our pre-loved club’s catalogue to see what we’ve got on the rack.

Clubs are for everyone!

Club opportunities are open to UNE students, wherever you are. Many clubs are run completely online and in cities across Australia, not just at our Armidale campus.
