Who Are We?

(Association of South-East Asian Nations) is a social-cultural university club ran strictly with the passion and minds of university students. With ambitious goals to ensure our patrons are able to take uni life to the next level, ASEAN aims to bring excitement in everything we do. ASEAN is an ever growing group associated with memorable family vibes, that gains constant love and support from our members. Many believe that university is just study. However we at ASEAN believe in a balanced life with academics and enjoyment, and have clearly proven it through the community we have built. 

About Us

For just over two decades, the pillar of Melbourne’s premier university social club, ASEAN Monash has held strong. Known for both its innovation and adherence to traditional culture, ASEAN has established itself, and will no doubt continue to uphold its reputation as one of Melbourne’s largest and most reputable university clubs. At ASEAN, our end goal is to take university life to the next level.


Established in 1997, this club has been in existence for two decades. ASEAN Monash is proud to be a grass-roots club. The seed planted by our founders, ordinary university students with a drive for community activity, has today expanded to well over 1000 members. Our members are mainly university students, all from different backgrounds and from many different universities and campuses around Melbourne.      

Originally established at the Clayton campus, the demand for flexibility and a growing audience has led to ASEAN’s expansion to three of Monash Universities’ largest campuses: Clayton, Caulfield and Parkville. We have grown from strength to strength in recent years and we are now Monash University's largest Social Club. In 2010, we finally had over 1000 members, as the years go by, we still continue to steadily increase our members each year. Consequently, we are confident that this year, we will achieve further growth within our three campuses at Monash.
