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!
At the bottom of the page you will find links to our different club and societies categories, clubs handbook and additional clubs resources.
As of August 3, 2015, the main RUSU City Campus Office wis in Building 57 Level 4. We also now have a small first point of contact office in Building 5. Details about new Clubs procedures for booking and collecting equipment, printing etc was emailed out to all club executives.
Applications for new 2016 clubs are now open.
Please use the link below to access information about how to start a new RUSU Club or re-start a lapsed club. But first, please check our club listings to ensure the club you want to start doesn't already exist!
Once you've read the "How to start a RUSU Affiliated Club " document, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know about your new club idea.
New or lapsed clubs initially gain Provisional Affiliation.This gives new clubs a club page on the RUSU website, the ability to participate in Orientation events and the ability to book on campus space for club meetings and activities at the start of semester. The Club must then complete the "Full Affiliation" process. Deadlines apply. We also have a mid-year intake so, if you need extra time to set up your club, the mid-year option may work for you.
Clubs must reaffiliate on an annual basis (it is not a once-only process). Members must re-join their clubs each year. RUSU Clubs require a minimum 20 currently enrolled RMIT student (Full) members. RUSU Clubs are democratic, not-for-profit and constitutionally bound student organisations run by RMIT students and for the benefit of RMIT students.
To understand the basic operating rules of RUSU clubs, please read through the Clubs Model Constitution at http://su.rmit.edu.au/assets/Downloads/CS-Model-Constitution-2015_2.pdf
