Decisions concerning the purchasing of garments at British institutions are often split between the university and the student union; how does affiliation with the WRC work in this context?

University administrations and their respective student unions are encouraged to affiliate at the same time. The university administration and student union are free to split the affiliation fee in a manner they deem appropriate in view of the relative size of their apparel programs.  However, if an administration or student union of a particular university joins prior to the other joining, the first to join should provide one half of the overall annual affiliation fee (£500).
