CLUBS & SOCIETIES

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT CLUBS & SOCIETIES

Want to get involved with a student group? Have we got a list for you! There are more than 175 clubs, societies, and groups for our members to pursue interests alongside their education, meet students within or outside their program, and make the most of their undergraduate years.

Our clubs & societies cover a broad range of interests – from academics to volunteerism to sports to faith to politics, and beyond! Each semester, as groups apply for ratification (or not), our Club & Society Directory will be updated accordingly. To get in touch about a listing in the Club & Society Directory, please contact membership@munsu.ca.

Applications must be submitted at least one month before the funds are required.

Ready to apply for ratification?

All MUNSU clubs and societies must apply for ratification each semester in order to receive funding and access to spaces and resources. New clubs and societies who have completed two concurrent semesters as a recognized group are eligible for ratification.  Ratifications are processed through our student life committee.
