Start a Society

So, you’ve seen the list of societies and haven’t found what you were looking for? Don’t worry, anyone can set up their own (or adopt one which is inactive)!

Just follow the steps below to get the ball rolling.


Step 1

Find two other people to be on the society's committee: a society needs a minimum of a President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer to get the group up and running. Find out about the committee roles here.

Step 2

As a Committee, think about what your society will look like: what will it do and what are the aims of the group? Once you've done this, complete the form at the bottom of this page. 

This is your chance to tell us what your society is and why it's unique.

(Note: if you are adopting a society rather than setting one up from scratch, just use the same form below.)

Step 3

Once your form has been submitted it will be reviewed by the EHSU Elected Officers and you will receive a response within 7-10 working days.

We may contact you in the meantime if we need more information.

Step 4

Once your application is approved, you'll be invited to a meeting with our Activities Coordinator so that you can learn about some of the practical aspects of running a society, discuss your aims and objectives and sign the EHSU Societies Constitution to make it official!
