New & Reaffiliating Societies
Affiliation for 2022-2023 is now open.
Please note, affiliation for 2022-2023 will close on 9th June 2023.
To fill out the Affiliation Application, please register for the website here.
In order to apply to affiliate with the SRC, you must complete an online affiliation application via our website, found below, which requires the following:
This year Clubs are required to display their membership options on the SRC Website through their Club Page. You can advertise membership that is free or paid. The default membership options for clubs are Standard and Associate membership. In addition to this, we can also offer customised memberships which allow you to ask signup questions and set up options that differ from the default. We will also be offering a sign-up option for Membership purchased off-line, for members who sign up at events. If this is something your society needs set up this would come under customised membership. To view your full membership you will need to have your office bearers attend our Clubs & Socs Website Training to gain access to your Club Management System, dates of which can found here.
TO BE ELIGIBLE TO AFFILIATE YOUR CLUB/SOCIETY MUST:
- Have at least three committee members. (e.g. President, Secretary, Treasurer)
- Have a minimum of 15 members in total.
- Ensure all Office Bearers are current students of the university
- Have no more than 20% non-student members
- Not replicate the remit of an existing club or society. A club or society must be able to clearly demonstrate its specific purpose and identity, and these must be different from any other pre-existing club or society.
To take full advantage of the benefits of affiliation at least two listed office bearers will be required to attend a virtual Compulsory Induction session, the dates of which will be published online in due course. Inductions this year will be held on Zoom. Clubs that do not attend the induction will not have access to benefits such as room booking or minibus booking privileges.
The Benefits (Click on the links for more info)
Affiliation takes place throughout the academic year. The deadline for submitting an affiliation application for the 22/23 academic year will be announced in due course. Any club or society that has not affiliated will not be eligible to apply for a stall at Welcome Fair 2023.
You must re-affiliate at the start of each academic year, otherwise your affiliation from the previous academic year will expire and you will not be able to book rooms or use SRC services until you re-affiliate.
GUSRC reserves the right to refuse affiliation to any club or society where concerns have been raised in the past and are considered to be unresolved. GUSRC also reserves the right to disaffiliate any clubs or societies that are considered to be acting in an improper manner and not for the best interests of students.
The decision of the Clubs and Societies Committee is FINAL
