The Clubs & Societies department is the biggest (and definitely the most penguin-loving) department of UMSU. The Clubs & Societies Officers and Committee look after more than 200 clubs. This involves all the fun stuff: affiliating new clubs, approving grant applications, and providing training to help clubs manage their financial, administrative, and food and alcohol-related ways. If you have any issues or queries regarding club shenanigans (how to start a club, organise an event, fill out forms, or anything else) we’re the people to talk to, so feel free to drop in and have a chat!
