Clubs and Societies
Student clubs are an integral and exciting part of the student experience while studying at Bond. Whether it be joining a club as a member or executive, attending one of the many club events held on campus or even forming a new club of your own interest.
The variety of student clubs on campus span many categories which are summarised as social, cultural, sports, community, religious, arts and educational. See our full list of clubs active in the current calendar year.
Social clubs on campus offer students the opportunity to come together and enjoy friendship and a common interest. Events are numerous and offer a wide range of activities all year round.
Cultural clubs cater for Bonds diversification of many cultures on campus. All students are welcome to join in and participate in each cultural club regardless of nationality. Our students proudly display and share the unique and wonderful food and festivals from their home countries with all students. International Week is the highlight of the semester for these clubs.
Sports clubs are supported by BUSA and managed by Bond Sports. Many of our teams compete in local and national competitions and are a fantastic way to get fit and meet new friends.
Community clubs are the heart and soul of the community conscience. Whether it be volunteering for a good cause, giving blood, protecting the environment or supporting others; there is a club for everyone who wants to make a difference.
At Bond we encourage and support our students religious beliefs. Many clubs have been formed for students with a common religious interest. These clubs often come together socially with regular meetings as well as events that welcome and include the general student population.
Our educational clubs often sit as subsidiaries of the four main faculty student associations (FSA's). They assist students with topical interests in their studies at Bond.
How can I join a club?
Peruse the list of clubs available each semester and reach out via social media or in person at the many events held during semester. Links to Bond clubs are easily found via the BUSA social media pages, the Bond website, various faculties and Bond Sports. If you can't find the club you are looking for, email BUSA for assistance.
Is there a specific 'sign up' day?
'Club Sign on Day' is held each semester in Week 1 and attracts hundreds of students to wander through the many stalls hosted by clubs and vendors. This event is run by the Student Association and celebrates campus life at a student level, with music, food and a friendly atmosphere. Sporting, social, cultural an educational clubs all attend to attract new members and share their knowledge.
How many clubs are on campus?
At any given time, Bond has between 75 and 100 active clubs. Clubs can range from a few members enjoying a common interest to large associations, running professional level events and coordinating many educational and social activities. We welcome all groups and encourage an inclusive mentality within our close knit community.

Bond University Student Association (BUSA)
Bond proudly boasts a modern, forward thinking student association which is professionally governed by an all-student based executive management committee, elected by the student body at the beginning of semester three each year.
BUSA is the overarching authority to all Bond student clubs and has two Directors who are specifically tasked to look after the interests of Student Clubs on campus.
Their office is located above the Lakeside eatery, overlooking the lake on the student verandah. All students can utilise this beautiful area and take advantage of the lovely view and sunshine.
Faculty Student Associations (FSA)
Each school and faculty has a designated student association specifically focused on the interests of students studying in their specific fields. These associations are commonly called 'FSA's' and liaise closely with the University to bring students the best support and access to social and educational events. They also provide a network of like-minded peers who are able to encourage and support students on the journey through their studies. There are many other subsidiary clubs which disseminate fields of study further to specific subjects or fields of study interest. A full list of all clubs on campus can be found here, or view the major faculty association links below.
