Student Organizations

CUHK has multiple affiliated student societies and interest clubs. By joining different clubs and participating in their activities, students can establish connections with like-minded individuals, explore and develop mutual interests, and thereby enrich their university life. Students can also unleash their potential, enhance their leadership skills, and expand their social networks through managing a society, hosting events, or creating new interest clubs, therefore achieving students’ whole-person development.

Formation of New Student Society (Interest Club)

  • The Chinese and English name of the proposed society
  • Introduction and background of the proposed society
  • Proposed mission, aim and nature of the proposed society
  • Contact person’s name and SID

The proposed new society must demonstrate a strong nature of interest in the CU community, with unique features and purposes that set it apart from existing student societies or interest clubs.

Once your proposal is approved by OSA, your proposed new society may begin drafting the Society Constitution, Activity Plan, and Budget Plan, as well as completing other necessary requirements of forming a new student society.

Upon fulfilling those requirements, the newly established society will be granted a Pilot Run Letter, allowing for a 6-month trial period. At the end of the pilot run period, the society is required to submit reports to OSA for review. If it is endorsed, the society will be successfully formed with official affiliation letter granted.
