New for 2018 – NTSU Communities

Want to organise an event or activity that brings together a group of like-minded people without the long-term commitment? Why not create an NTSU Community?

What are NTSU Communities?

NTSU Communities enable you to pursue an activity with a group of friends or other like-minded people. Unlike a society, these groups have less paperwork, are more informal, have less of a long-term commitment while still retaining some of the benefits of societies.

Why start a group?

NTSU Communities are aimed at students who want to get involved with the students’ union and meet like-minded people with similar interests but don’t want the long-term commitment and administrative formality of societies.

Whether you are planning a weekly get-together or a one-off activity, starting an NTSU Community is easy to do. Just follow the 4 steps below.
