Clubs and societies

We have dozens of clubs and groups that you can join, depending on your interests. Join in social activities and meet new like-minded friends with a lively and diverse social calendar of events each year.

Join a club for recreation, music, sport, social justice or to meet other students studying in your faculty or course.

You can:

  • meet representatives from over 100 student clubs and societies at Orientation Week
  • take a look at the current clubs at the QUT Student Guild website.
