How CUBO Membership Works:

Primary Member

Your application should come from the person who will be the main and voting member for your HEI – a senior manager with strategic responsibility for at least two areas of commercial or campus services. This is your Primary Member.

Institutional Member

Your university will become an Institutional Member of CUBO.


Your Primary Member will choose your membership package – see below - and nominate colleagues who will become Members. These will be working in management or director roles across your university business operations. You can give up to nine additional colleagues access to CUBO benefits – choose from four Membership packages below.

Sub-Group Member

You can also add as many Sub-Group Members as you like. These are marketing and finance staff working within your university commercial services. They are not full CUBO members but have access to our Marketing or Finance Group online and one or two networking events per year.

Membership Packages

The CUBO membership year runs from 1 August to 31 July. If you join during the year, fees will be pro-rata’d.
