Contact the SRC about clubs and societies
- For general enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to resolve your query by email in the first instance. If you would prefer to chat through your query with a member of SRC staff, or if you have several queries, then we can arrange a Zoom call with your society to help answer your questions.
- For general enquiries you can also come into the SRC Welcome Point in the McIntyre Building. Our opening hours are Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
- Clubs and societies first point of contact with SRC Council is the Vice President – Student Activities: email@example.com. Clubs and societies can contact the VP Student Activities if they have questions on society policy or wider support issues. More information on the VPSA role can be found on the Sabbatical Officers page.
Can the SRC help clubs and societies with hosting their events?
Yes! If you are organising an event, you can now have your events displayed on your SRC Club page. If you have attended our Clubs & Socs Website Training, you will be given access to create club events, and you just need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with event ticket details. We can accommodate, free and paid events. If you have not attended this training, please email email@example.com with your event details and we can advertise this for you.
If you have any queries regarding hosting club/society events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long does it take to affiliate my society to the SRC?
The affiliation process varies depending on if you are a New Society or a Reaffiliating Society. All New Societies must be reviewed by the Clubs & Socs Committee before being full processed. The outcome of your application should be relayed to you within a maximum of 3 weeks. If you have not heard from us by this time please send a follow up email to email@example.com.
I'm an Office Bearer – can I have this recognised?
HEAR allows 4 committee members (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) to have their role in the club/society recognised on their graduation transcript.
If you would like any more information on HEAR and how to apply, please check our HEAR page.
If you do not hold a HEAR-Eligible position, there are a couple of futher options available to all office bearers. We consider any University of Glasgow student who gives up their time freely, for the benefit of others, to be a volunteer. Therefore, Committee members are eligible to log their hours dedicated to the club as volunteering through the SRC Website. You can find the information on setting this up on our Clubs & Socs Volunteering page.
What is the Club Management System?
We now have a Club Management System on our new website, where clubs can securely store their documents. This function will be made available to clubs, once they have attended the Clubs Website Training. You can find the dates for the training here.
Benefits of this include:
- Adding Events to your Club Page.
- Messaging Function (setting up mailing list).
- It allows you to keep track of your Current Membership.
- Add Resources & News to your Club Page.
- Secure storage for Handovers (Admin Only Resources).
- Members-only Events.
- Editing your Club Page on the SRC Website.
- Sales Reports for all purchases (this includes customised ones).
What is the SRC Holding Account?
Clubs wishing to apply for grants must have a society bank account or have an SRC Holding Account.
If your Club chooses to open an SRC Holding account it allows for easier switch over between committees each year and still requires two signatories for the Account. Clubs will still be in charge of their finances, we will just be acting as a banking service on their behalf. For payments we will require authorisation from both signatories before they are made. The SRC will update societies bi-monthly on their funds total. If your Club is interested in this please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
