Clubs and Societies Membership Fund

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

LUU Clubs & Societies Membership 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 some of the membership fee for clubs and societies reimbursed. You will be required to pay the first £20 of membership fees, then a successful application to the fund will see any remaining fees over £20 reimbursed. For example, if your membership fee is £30, a successful application will result in £10 being reimbursed to you.

Looking to have the other costs associated with being in a society reimbursed? Take a look at the Clubs and Societies Associated Costs Fund.

Haven’t joined a society yet? Why not take LUU’s quiz to find out which might be a good fit for you? With over 300 to choose from, there’s sure to be at least one for everyone.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • You must be registered on the Plus Programme, or eligible to join. For those not currently registered, you can find info on how to apply for membership here.
  • The membership fee for the club or society must be over £20
  • The membership fee must be for a one year period only (if your club or society does not offer one year membership, a longer membership is permitted)


Before you apply, please read through the Clubs & Societies Membership Fund Guidance document, which contains eligibility criteria, the application process, evidence requirements and FAQs.

You must then complete the online application form, which will be reviewed as quickly as possible.
