Clubs and Societies Handbook

All you need to know about starting and running an SRC-affiliated club or society at the University of Glasgow

You’ve finally taken the plunge and decided to start the society that you’ve always dreamed about. Naturally, you want to share your love of your chosen hobby with the student population of the University of Glasgow. The SRC is here with some advice on how you can achieve this, so that you can get on with the important side of being part of a student society – having fun.

Below are some excerpts from the current Clubs and Societies Handbook to help you find your way when it comes to getting a new society off the ground or, if you have just been elected to an Office Bearer position in an existing society, how you can keep your society running like a well-oiled machine.

You can find details on how to book a room for your regular meetings, how to hire a minibus for that club outing, or how to apply for a grant to help your society take part in events/get new materials to support your activities.*

*Please note that due to COVID-19 there are restrictions in place that will likely impact your club’s planned activities and access to certain services such as room bookings. To keep up-to-date with any changes being made to restrictions, please refer to the University’s information page and their FAQs page regarding COVID-19.
