Victoria College Clubs

Ah, clubs - constituents of an active and ever-changing landscape, wherein the individual members of Victoria College can find like-minded individuals of every kind and creed. These student groups represent an exceedingly wide variety of interests and are always looking for new members; what’s more, Vic students are always welcome to start a new club at any time of year!

Clubs must apply for recognition on an annual basis, and recognition granted at any point in the year will expire on April 30th.

Although the Primary Club Application Period for 2020-2021 is closed, applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis. New applications will be presented at the soonest possible VUSAC Meeting for ratification.

 Looking to start a club? Read the Handbook and fill out the Application
