As a UEA graduate, or alumnus, you can become a life member of uea(su). Life membership is only £10 and lasts for life (the clue is in the name!). This will allow you to join our clubs and societies and must be bought alongside the group membership fees.
How do I become a life member?
- If you wish to become a life member, the first thing you will need to do is to create a guest account on this website. To do this, click the login icon in the top right corner, then navigate to the guest/staff login, and select register new user.
- Once you have made a guest account, you will need to fill out this form and send it over to firstname.lastname@example.org with proof that you are are alumni. For example, you could attach a photo of your campus card or a copy of your degree. If approved, we will then get in contact with you to finish making your alumni account.
- We also have paper version of these forms available in the SU office which you can fill out in person.

You can join a club here
In order to join a sports club, you will also need to purchase Sports Association Membership (SAM) on top of the associate membership and the specific club membership fee. SAM is £50 a year and covers lots of costs like insurance, coaching, equipment, competition costs etc. It is mandatory for all students and life members who are in sports clubs, and only needs to be paid once a year.
If you wish to join a club after the Christmas break in January, the cost of SAM reduces to £30. For more information click here
Society and Club Committees
Please bear in mind that, as an lifemember, you will not be able to take part in elections of student representatives or in those of clubs and societies committees, as they are UEA student led.
Code of Conduct
You will be expected to uphold the same code of conduct as our students. Being part of a UEA club or society means that you must respect this code, and adhere to our code of conduct
, so you need to be aware of these.
