Clubs and Societies

Want to get off your ass and get involved? Have a look at just some of UNE’s fabulous Clubs and Societies! GSMA GSMA is Armidale’s Gender and Sexuality Minorities Alliance, based at UNE. It is a group that hopes to provide events, support and a discussion forum for the Armidale area’s GBTLI community. This group encompasses both the old Queerspace group as well as the old AQuA group.

The Queer Space at UNE is a space where all GLBTI Armidillians can come meet, socialise, get information, help or just talk to other GLBTI people. It is a Space where everyone is welcome and can feel safe and at home. We also welcome allies!







The University Women’s Society (UNEWS) is a group which organises fundraisers, cultural events, activism and social gatherings among many other things. Our mission is to collect a group of women together to get things done in a positive way. We also aim to empower women through knowledge, advocacy and skill sharing. Most of our events are open to all women, even if you’re not a member so feel free to come along, you might even like it enough to become a member or associate member. Facebook:












AYCC New England

AYCC New England is the local branch of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. Our aim is to empower young people in the New England region to take action on climate change through education, inspiration and mobilisation. We participate in national campaigns, engage in issues on a local level, receive training and support from the state branch, and provide opportunities to become involved on anything from downtown market stalls or regional political activism to national summits and events.

It is young Australians who will face the consequences of decisions made today. The AYCC’s vision is to deliver the short-term political impact and long-term cultural change for a safe climate future. We welcome all young people and also have roles available.







Law Students’ Society

UNE Law Students’ Society hosts both academic, cultural, social and sporting activities, in an effort to supplement the legal education of students, both internal and external. Activities this year include Academic Competitions, Cocktail Night, and Careers Week, among many others! Membership is just $10, which entitles members to discounted rates to LSS-hosted events and merchandise, access to LSS facilities, and a rather splendid membership card. Join us in our common room in the Law School, post to our facebook wall, or email us at if you have any enquiries, suggestions, or just feel like a chat!













We are a support group for Mums/Mums-to-be who are studying (internal/external) at UNE, Armidale. We are also the largest off-campus group and are proud to be part of the student cohort at UNE. Admins are Sikiki Lloyd, Catherine O’Connor and Rachel Campbell. Feel free to direct your questions to any one of us (Ed UNE too). Here’s to our future successes through higher education!
