Congratulations on becoming a member of one of the largest (and best) student societies at The University of York. As you have bought your membership online, you will need to come and collect some things from us to get the most out of what is on offer to you.

Membership & Practice Room Cards

Showing your Society membership card gets you discounts across York and beyond. You may also wish to use the Derwent Practice Rooms. For this, you will need to collect an access card (in addition to your membership card) and sign an agreement.


We get a lot of requests for membership cards and access cards. Students sign up at all times throughout the year, so occasionally we will be unable to deal with every request we get on the various platforms we receive them.

We advise that you come to the Music Department during a Music Society Event. Find out when the next event is here.

If you want to save time, you can fill in the agreement in advance, print it off, and provide us with two copies when you come to collect your card.

Access to the Department is through the sliding automatic doors by the Box Office, and Society personnel can usually be found in the Foyer outside the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall.
