Clubs and Societies
Joining a club is a great way to make some new friends and get involved while you are studying at the University of Newcastle. There are over 100 clubs and societies on campus with something for everyone including sporting, social, cultural and religious groups. Clubs and societies must choose to affiliate with one of the student organisations on campus, depending on the type of club.
Affiliation gives your club additional support and ensures you are doing the right thing by your members, as well as making sure you are insured for all your club’s activities. Sporting clubs must affiliate with NUSport, while social clubs (political, academic, social, cultural or spiritual) can choose to affiliate with one of many groups, one of which is the U.
Did you know that the U offers heaps of FREE services to clubs? You can choose to affiliate with us for the full range of support and subsidies, or simply register* to access the basic range of services.
*To register with the U in 2014, you must be affiliated with another association on campus (Faculty, NUsport, NUPSA, NUSA, Campus Central).
What's the difference between registration and affiliation?
