Complete Guide to running a UC Club coming soon.
UC Life has funding available to support the activities of all registered clubs and societies. The funding structure has been revised in 2020 to streamline the process for clubs and societies and UC Life. Please use this guide to assist with understanding this funding model. If you have further questions please contact UC Life.
All funding will be provided by reimbursement except where previously arranged with UC Life. If items can be ordered by UC Life, you can arrange an appointment where UC Life can pay for these directly.
Base Funding - Will be available for clubs to claim at $10 per student member up to 100 members. This means that your club could potentially get $1,000 of base funding for use on merchandise, advertising, and club operations.
Event Funding - Clubs can submit a funding request for any event that needs funds. Funding requests are assessed on a per-application basis with consideration given to the number of students who benefit, club funds, student contribution amount and amounts previously provided.
UC Life will make every effort to respond to funding requests within 5 business days. Please note that during peak times this may not be possible.

Clubs can book the club & society space, tutorial and lecture rooms on campus at UC. At least 1-week notice must be provided. We have a dedicated Club & Society Space in 1A01 fitted with TVs, tables & chairs for 30 people, beanbags, tea & coffee station. The Club & Society space is our preferred venue for club events & meetings. To book a room complete the room booking form.
Club Event Promotion
Submit your event details in the event promotion form (previously Event Registration Form) for UC Life to help with promotion. This form is not required for all events, only if you would like additional promotion support. All events should be listed in UniOne.
Post Event Summary
After each event, clubs need to complete the post-event summary form, this includes details on the event, how it went (which can be passed on to future executive members) and receipt uploads for reimbursements. Event summaries will need to be submitted within 2 weeks after the event by ALL CLUBS for ALL EVENTS. Recurring events (weekly/fortnightly) can be submitted at the end of each semester (S1, Winter, S2, Summer).
