Getting involved in Clubs

ANU boasts over 180 clubs, offering unique educational, sporting, cultural and social opportunities to members.

Universal Lunch Hour

Do you want to promote your club/cause? Universal Lunch Hour is a great way to do this! Held every Thursday at midday, a club can have a turn at cooking on the ANUSA BBQs in Union Court. Brian Kenyon Student Space will provide a basic BBQ kit (tongs, spatula, knives, foil and plastic trays) as well as ingredients if you need it.

If you would like to sign up for Universal Lunch Hour for this Semester please fill out the following form:


Each Club is entitled to a 40 page printing allowance per semester. The 40 pages must be:

  • A4
  • Single sided (or 20 double sided)
  • Colour

To have your documents printed, send an email to with:

  • The document to be printed attached as a PDF, formatted for A4
  • Your name and contact details
  • The name of your club
  • How many copies you would like
  • When you will be collecting the printing (note that we may not be able to process your printing immediately)

You will need to collect the printed documents in person at the ANUSA Offices in Building 17, Union Court (above Commonwealth Bank).

Clubs Council 

The ANUSA Grants and Affiliations Committee has been replaced by the Students Clubs Council. The Council is composed of representatives from each affiliated ANU Club or Society, ANUSA and PARSA. The governance and day to day management of the Council will be undertaken by a Council Executive. Once affiliated, clubs enjoy access to funding, the right to request permission to hold events on campus, room bookings, access to ANUSA’s public liability insurance and free equipment hire. The base funding regulations for the Students Clubs Council are exactly the same as that of the Grants and Affiliations Committee.

What does this mean for Clubs? Every club now has a voice in how the clubs program operates. The Council will meet at least once every Teaching Period to discuss issues that clubs are facing, from funding policy to event management, approving new affiliations and more.

In order to continue affiliation a Delegate or proxy from each club and society must attend these meetings. Attendance is in your best interest for a number of reasons, including being able to voice and actively decide how clubs and societies will operate, receive funded and how clubs will continue to benefit the ANU student population.

Club funding


For ANUSA affiliated clubs and societies to qualify for reimbursement of expenditure, they need to complete a two part application process.

Before applying for a grant, clubs should be well acquainted with the funding regulations. These can be found above.

The first step is filling out a Budget Request. This must be done BEFORE an event. This  is used to document what clubs expect to spend money at their event. Due to the funding system being unavailable for a number of weeks, events occurring before 17/3/17 can have Budget Requests submitted after the date of the the event. 

Once the budget request has been processed, clubs will need to fill out a Payment Request. This must include valid documentation. 

Once this has been approved, the club will be reimbursed. Processing will occur within office hours from Tuesday-Friday. If you have any questions please email

Venue Hire Support

In the lead up to Union Court’s redevelopment in Semester 2 of 2017, the Student Clubs’ Council Executive wants to support clubs in accessing venues. We are collecting clubs’ Semester 2 venue requirements so we can proactively engage with ANU Central Timetabling and Venue Hire to secure space for clubs. Please fill out our survey with details of potential venues your club will require, as well as venue requirements for weekly meetings etc.
