Start a New Society
First check online on the societies pages to see if it, or something similar, already exists. (If in doubt, email Rosie on firstname.lastname@example.org). Download the New Society Form from here, or pick one up from Rosie (Level 2, Union House) or Josh (Level 3, Union House).
Fill in the form in with as much detail as possible. Supporting documents/letters may be attached if you need to.
Talk to 20 students who are also interested in the idea of the society, and ask them to give you their name, student number and signature for the second page of the form. In filling in this, they are not obliged to join the society; they are simply stating that they think the idea of that particular society is a good idea.
Email/hand in/post the completed form with signatures to Rosie (email@example.com).
Your proposal will then be taken to the Societies Committee for consideration. As long as your society provides some kind of educational, social or cultural benefit to members, does not cross-over too much with another society, and does not contravene the Students’ Union Constitution, it should be approved. You will then be contacted by Josh (Societies & Services Officer) to discuss your next steps in being a fully registered society.
Start a New Sport
First look carefully to see if the club you want to be set up is already there, if not download this form and fill it in with as much detail as possible, including supporting documents. Then hand it back to Sadie (Sport Swansea Office) or Imogen (3rd Floor Union House). You need to have at least 30 interested members. At the end of each academic year these applications are bought forward at the Sports Forum and hopefully accepted. The club is then put on a one year trial, if they prove themselves as a functioning club then they are given full status.
