How To Directory

How can members join/register for your society?

This section covers creating memberships, joining free societies and purchasing paid memberships.


Creating memberships

In order for members to be able to join your society, you must create a membership option - either free or paid. Both can be created in a similar way.

  • Head to your group's admin page.
  • Under "Finances", select "Membership fees"
  • Click "Add Membership" and enter the details, price and the period that the membership covers. Please double-check the start and end dates of your membership!

It is possible to have several membership options. Please note that all memberships have to be purchased through the SUSU website. Free memberships are in effect instantly after pressing the "Join" button.

Remember, non-students can join clubs or societies but must first have associate/lifetime Union membership. Without this, they will not be insured. Union membership can be purchased here. Solent and Recovery College Students are entitled to free membership but they must formally apply for it.
