How to Join a RUSU Club

Joining A RUSU Club Is Easy... Here's How!


While all clubs do things slightly differently, they have one thing in common... they all want YOU as a member! Follow the simple steps below to find out how you can successfully join any club. If you have any difficulty with the steps below or if you've joined a RUSU Club but haven't received any follow up from it (give it a bit of time!), please contact our friendly RUSU Clubs team at , who will be happy to assist you.

To discover ALL student clubs and collectives at RMIT, visit: the RMIT Clubs website .

Step Two: Join!

For info about specific RUSU Clubs, simply navigate to the page of the RUSU Club you are interested in joining. Read the information on the Club page to find out:

  • If there is a membership fee to join (see below).
  • How the Club manages its' membership.

How to join:

  • Click the purple 'Join or Renew' button on the club web page, or follow the joining link on the club page.
  • Log in to the RUSU website, or create an account* (your RMIT login won't work here, as they are different systems).
  • Complete the Club Membership form.
  • If there are problems with the Membership Form, contact the Club directly using the contact information on their page.

Step 3: Renew Each Year!

All RUSU Clubs require members to re-join each year. So, if you want to continue to be a member, you must re-apply.

  • Most RUSU Clubs offer an annual membership starting at the beginning of semester one and valid for 12 months.
  • A few RUSU Clubs offer an annual membership starting in semester two, and valid for 12 months.

It's important to know:

  • Annual membership closes when a club announces its' Annual General Meeting (AGM) and annual leadership team elections.
  • Annual membership re-opens after the club elections are finalised.
  • Memberships also temporarily close if a club holds a by-election.

Step 4: Join RUSU!

You don't have to be a RUSU financial member to join a RUSU Club... but we'd love to represent you as a RUSU member!

If a joining fee is required (see Step 2, above):

  • Pay the Club Membership Fee.
  • Some clubs have an instant payment, while others will email you with payment instructions.
  • When the joining fee is paid, your annual membership will be finalised.
  • If there is no joining fee, you will (usually) become a Member as soon as you submit the Membership Form.
