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.

Important dates

If you've created your group and you're ready to become affiliated with Macquarie University, applications must go through MacSync and intake is from the end of Session 2 in November until the end of Session 1 around June.

Student group funding

Affiliated student groups can apply for funding to help with their events, activities and operations. 

To apply, just raise a Budget Request on MacSync. Provide an itemised budget of things you need funding for and attach supporting documents. If approved, the money will be transferred to the student group bank account.

Student HQ encourages all student groups to apply and use the MacPay finance system.

Insurance

Affiliated student groups have access to protections arranged by U@MQ Ltd, as outlined below:
