Students who are running clubs where membership is also open to people from other colleges can apply to register these with the Proctors.
The clubs need to meet various criteria to obtain official recognition. But when registered the clubs are entitled to receive benefits like I.T. access, insurance cover, minibus hire, financial support. These registration arrangements include student publications.
Unregistered clubs are not allowed to use "Oxford University" in their names (or to use the university's coat of arms).
For information about the University Regulations and how to register with the Proctors, see the Clubs Committee Web Site
Support for registered clubs (especially non-sports and publications) is provided through the Clubs Committee chaired by the Assessor.
Sport clubs registration and support are handled through the Sports Department in the first instance. For further information see the University Sports Department Web Page
