Student Group Resources

Student group leaders must re-register their student organizations every year in order to remain active. CAP will offer student group re-registration meetings in the spring semester to share information about this process. Student groups must also ensure their roster is up to date and meets all of the requirements to be an active student group.

Registered student groups have access to:

  • Academic and meeting space on campus
  • Funding and fiscal accounts on campus
  • Fundraising and the ability to accept donations on behalf of group
  • Office space and storage lockers
  • Student Group Resource Room
Student Group Cubicles

Assignment of office space for student groups in the Elliott University Center is based upon their expected level of involvement in the Elliott University Center and contribution to the life of the University community, as evaluated by Campus Activities and Programs. At this time, there is no available office spaces.

Storage lockers are located in EUC Room 225 and 227. Student groups have access to lockers on a first come, first serve basis. To gain access to a storage locker, student groups must reach out to Meredith Atchison to receive information on next steps.
