Newly Formed Societies

If you want to start a new society then visit: www.sheffieldsu.com/startasociety

If you’ve recently been approved as a new society, then congratulations!

This page has got some key documents and forms that are essential for you to complete in order to become a registered society. Your approval email will have included a deadline date by which to have completed these - you must keep to this date, otherwise your group will automatically be de-registered and you will have to reapply to be a society.

Documents & Forms you must complete for registration:

Committee Details Part A : Society/Committee Information" needs to be submitted once by the President/Chair only.

Committee Details Part B : Individuals' Information" needs to be submitted by every single member of the committee (including President/Chair). Forms will require University of Sheffield email login to access them.

New Society Starter Pack: The New Society Starter Pack should be submitted by all committee members who would like to have the role of 'New Society Founder' recorded on his/her HEAR. The Pack needs to be submitted within two months of the society's approval. Committee members also need to have submitted their Committee Details Part B form within one month of the society's approval, in order to have 'New Society Founder' recorded in their HEAR. 

You must, as a committee, complete your new Constitution and send this to the Activities Zone Desk (activities@shef.ac.uk). Your Constitution is your society’s governing document and should be renewed annually.

You should read all the relevant guides on the Zone Online to get to grips with you role and start planning and marketing your events and activities.

Remember we’re always here to help. Either speak to your Societies Committee Liaisons (societiescommittee@sheffield.ac.uk) or the Activities Zone Desk (activities@sheffield.ac.uk).

Good Luck!
