One of USASA’s key objectives is contributing to a campus culture where students have fun, make friends and take pride in their University. What better way to do this than by supporting student clubs?
USASA Clubs are the largest contributor to student events at UniSA, running up to 1000 events per year, and providing a network of students to make friends and create connections with.
USASA supports clubs in a variety of ways including resourcing and mentorship, with the aim of empowering students to engage each other, peer-to-peer.
USASA Clubs Committee
The USASA Clubs Committee is a subcommittee of the USASA Board, and is made up of USASA Clubs Support Staff, Board Members and USASA Club Executive Members.
This committee is an opportunity for attendees to raise issues and ideas with the aim of improving the service that USASA provides for its clubs.

SSAF and Clubs
USASA Clubs are established under the USASA constitution as sub-committees of the USASA board. The funds used by USASA to deliver its services, including support to and funding of clubs, is provided by the University from SSAF funds collected in any given year.
The Higher Education Legislation Amendment (Student Services and Amenities) Act
states that fee revenue must not
be used to support political parties, or to support the election of a person to a Commonwealth or State or Territory Parliament.
Clubs are prohibited from providing support to any political party, or campaigning for any political party or person in any election. This includes but is not limited to, communications, marketing materials, signage, social media, posters, events and activities on or off campus.
Any breaches will be treated with the utmost seriousness up to and including the removal of clubs and club persons from University campus, and the suspension or removal of a club from the USASA clubs register.
