New & Reaffiliating Societies
Affiliation for 2021/22 is now open.
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, which includes uploading the following documents:
To take full advantage of the benefits of affiliation at least two listed office bearers will be required to attend a virtual 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.
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.
If, due to the situation with COVID-19, your club is having problems meeting the minimum requirements for affiliation, please still complete the online affiliation application and send an email to email@example.com explaining the reasons why you haven’t been able to meet the minimum requirements. The Clubs and Societies Committee will take your reasons into consideration when it comes to reviewing your affiliation application.
THE BENEFITS (Click on the links for more info)
*SRC Minibus hire is subject to clubs meeting certain required criteria and, where relevant, the availability of the service required.
Affiliation takes place throughout the academic year. The deadline for submitting an affiliation application for the 21/22 academic year is to be confirmed. Any club or society that has not affiliated will not be eligible to apply for a stall at Freshers’ Fair 2022.
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.
