Southampton University Hillwalking Club

Available memberships

SUHC offers 2 forms of memberships:

Free Day Walk Only membership (£0): as the title suggests, it's completely free! Use this membership to come on our day walks and socials. However, you CANNOT attend Away Trips. Lasts a lifetime.

Paid Membership, 1 year (£20): You'll need this to have the privilege of attending our Away Trips (for insurance purposes). Comes with the additional benefits of discounts on any paid social events and club merchandise/clothing (when on sale).

To purchase your membership: pay the club Treasurer or any other committee member in person, or you can pay through the Union Southampton website/box office. However you pay, you'll need to provide us with your student ID number and email address for us to process your membership. If unsure how to pay, contact us via email first and we'll help you the best we can.

So what does your membership fee do for the club? Your money is put towards buying and maintaining club kit such as tents, camping and safety equipment and maps of our walk locations, and for subsidising the cost of our Away Trips and Day Trips. So please do consider becoming a full paid member :)

University Staff, Alumni, Erasmus or non-student? Read on...

If you fall into ANY of these categories, please speak to the committee before purchasing membership. Do NOT attempt to buy online!

As a Union Southampton affiliated club, paid members must also be members of the Union. Erasmus students, don't panic! This is automatic. University staff, alumni and non-Southampton students, you need to purchase Union affiliate or lifetime membership. Please ask at the Union Box Office/reception for further details.

For Erasmus and other 1-semester exchange students studying at the university, we offer a 1-semester membership for half price (£10). This is only available direct from the Committee.

As per our open Day Walk policy/free day walk membership, people in the above categories may still attend any and all of our Day Trips. Doing so, you acknowledge that you may not be covered for personal injury.
