Club registration period is OPEN JANUARY 3 – JANUARY 25, 2024.

Here are the steps to start a new club!

  • Check to see if a club that serves your interest already exists in the DSU Clubs Directory
  • Review the Douglas Students’ Union Clubs policy and other relevant Douglas College Policies listed here:
  • After reviewing the documents above, you can download a Winter Club Registration Package or pick up one from our DSU front desk in New Westminster or Kiosk in Coquitlam. 
  • Choose a name that begins with ‘DSU’ and one that describes what your club will do.
  • You will need a minimum of 15 students to start a club (30 for a course union).
    • Out of those, 3 must be your club executives (ex: President, Vice President, Treasurer).
  • You will have the opportunity to attend the DSU Clubs fair to promote your club and recruit club members. Please see club fair registration form, included in the Club registration package (above), for more details.
  • Submit your completed registration package forms at clubs@thedsu.ca or in person to one of the DSU offices by the last Thursday of September/January (as per the clubs policy).
    ** PLEASE NOTE – THE DEADLINE TO START A CLUB FOR THE WINTER SEMESTER IS JANUARY 25, 2024.**
  • Club registration packages are accepted and ratified at the beginning of the Fall and Winter semesters.
  • When your club has been approved, you will be contacted via email.
  • All approved clubs will be required to attend Club Council, after ratification. Club Council is scheduled for FRIDAY FEBRUARY 2, 2024 at 12pm.
