These resources are intended to provide useful guidance and links for committee members of the clubs and societies affiliated with the Faculty.
Affiliation with the Faculty
Applying for Affiliation: Applications are reviewed on an annual basis. Applications for 2023 affiliation have now closed.
IMPORTANT: Only applications from UMSU or GSA-affiliated clubs will be considered.
FBE Clubs & Societies Handbook: This handbook outlines the policies and procedures that govern the affiliation of Clubs and Societies including details of affiliation, funding, club office and storage, corporate engagement and sponsorship, as well as promotion of events. At the start of each year, each club will be required to sign an agreement with the affiliation policy. Any breach of the policy may result in the club's disaffiliation.
Clubs' Office Space
The use of 131 Barry Street is for club members only. Allowing access to non-club members is against affiliation and may risk your clubs' access to the building.
Use of meeting rooms: The upstairs rooms are for club members to use for club-related activities including planning, meetings and interviews.
Cupboards: Each club has been allocated half of a storage cupboard. These are located in rooms 101 and 102 on the ground floor. All club items must be stored in these cupboards; anything that doesn't fit in the cupboard should not be stored at 131 Barry Street. The only exceptions to this are the fold-away tables which may be stored in the spaces next to the cupboards.
Lockers: Each club may use one red locker located at the end of the corridor on the ground floor. Ensure that your locker is clearly labelled with your club name. The PIN number to use the locks can be set by the clubs. If you need to gain entrance to your locker and do not know the code, you will need to contact security to reset the PIN via the Campus Security number 03 8344 6666. To avoid resetting your lock, use only one PIN and electronically record the PIN where it is accessible to committee members.
OH&S: Make sure that all windows and doors are closed and all lights are turned off when you exit the building. Do not store any food items in the storage areas. Throw away rubbish responsibly.
