Start a club

RUSU is proud to represent the needs of a unique, ever-changing and diverse student body at RMIT. Our Clubs and Societies (C&S) Department is dedicated to helping students explore their social, professional, political, spiritual and cultural identities by supporting a wide array of campus clubs. Each club is run by RMIT students for RMIT students and is open for membership to all RMIT students!

How to Start a New RUSU Club

RUSU has two intakes of new clubs each year - a start of year (calendar year clubs) intake and a mid-year (mid-year clubs) intake. Each affiliation period lasts for 2 Semesters.  Clubs must re-affiliate every year. Club members must re-join their club/s for the next club affiliation period. New Club applications are now open for 2018. If you are interested in starting a new RUSU club for 2018, please read the information below.
