Our team works towards creating an environment which is both inclusive and accessible to all. Here are some of the ways we can help your society and committee members:

We organise Societies PresCom and Societies WelfCom - spaces for society Presidents and Welfare Reps to meet each other, share ideas, arrange collaborations, and get support from your SU Sabbs. To attend, make sure your committee list is up-to-date on the directory and we will invite you.

We understand that running a society can be challenging, and it might get tough to balance your studies along with the society work. We are happy to arrange a meeting with you to talk through any issues you might be experiencing. You can get in touch with us at We don't have any authority to intervene in the governance of student societies, but we can listen and suggest ideas.

To make things easier for you, we also provide online and comprehensive in-person training to your committee so they can be equipped with the right skillset to help your society members. Have a look at the trainings we offer here

Registering with the Proctor’s 

Clubs and Societies can register with the University Proctor’s Office. Registering is a good idea because it means your society will have access to a range of support and services, including: 

  • Use of the University’s name and coat of arms (subject to separate permission) 

  • Being listed on the Register of Student Clubs on the University website 

  • Access to University IT facilities and support, including use of Oxford University email and website 

  • Insurance cover 

  • Vehicle hire through the Transport Scheme 

  • Financial support 

  • Access to practical guidance and resources 

In order to register, your society must be able to meet a few conditions. These include adopting the standard constitution, having established committee officers, and keeping a membership list. You will also need to adopt a complaints procedure and a code of conduct. There are standard templates provided for this. You can find out more about these conditions here: Register a club | University of Oxford 

You also need to make sure that you register your club or society every year, by week 2 in Michaelmas Term. 

Once you are registered, you’ll be able to apply for financial support. There are grants between £200 and £800 that clubs and societies can apply for, including a £200 start up grant.
