There is a range of student clubs and societies that enable students to engage in specific fields of interest as well as engage with the larger JCU, Singapore student community.
Students organise club drives in the second week of each trimester to highlight the range of activities available on campus. There is also a welcome night for students every semester where new students meet and socialise with current students. In addition, there are cultural events organised to celebrate cultural diversity. Meanwhile, the JCU Volunteer Club allows students to take part in community work, such as rendering services to welfare homes and performing at special events in the community. Besides, service to the community is characteristic of many of the different Student Clubs. For example, the Banking and Finance Student Club members organised a blood donation drive of their own volition.
