Join or create a group

We have a diverse range of student groups and sports clubs at Macquarie.

To create or join a student group you need to sign into MacSync with your Campus ID and have a look at the group directory to find out about existing groups. If you see a group that appeals to you, you can join it and soon connect with Macquarie students who share your passion.

If you don’t see the group that you were looking for, why not create your own, spread the word and get social. 

Don’t forget to check out Macquarie’s wide range of sporting clubs. There’s something to suit any level of fitness, appetite for competition, or just for fun.
