Welcome to the Societies & Communities Handbook

We want to give you everything you need to run a successful society, community or media group.

This is a 'living' document. As students ask us questions which aren't covered in this document, we'll add new sections to make this a robust resource for you all.

As a student group leader you are part of a community of those just like you, and we value your input and feedback at every turn. As ever, we invite any and all suggestions, improvements and changes to this guide.

If you cannot find something in this handbook, try the search bar at the top left of your screen. If no results show, just send over an email and we will try and fix your problem as soon as possible.


For any and all questions about finance, external speakers, Welcome Week, SU Awards, room bookings, committee management, training, starting a society and more...

Please join the Facebook Groups Goldsmiths Society Leaders. These are great resources to get common questions answered by one another.
