Clubs and Societies Associated Costs Fund

The Clubs and Societies Associated Costs Fund exists to help Plus Programme students access the full range of Clubs and Societies at Leeds University Union.

LUU Clubs & Societies Associated Costs Fund – Closed for 2023/24

The LUU Clubs & Societies Fund runs on a limited budget each academic year, and in 2023/24 we have seen a record number of applications. For this reason unfortunately applications for this academic year are now closed. We’re sorry for the disappointment this may cause.

As long as you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply to have up to £200 reimbursed from costs you have incurred over the 23/24 Academic Year as a society member.

Looking to have your society membership fees reimbursed? Head to the membership fund webpage.
