Services
Student Organizations

Student Organizations are an integral part of student life at USG! Students are encouraged to form and participate in recognized student organizations as a way to increase students and faculty interaction and to enrich the overall collegial experience.

While student groups may gather and convene informally at any time, we encourage students to apply to have their groups approved as official and recognized organizations by The Office of Student Services (OSS) at USG. The registration process offers organizations a number of benefits, such as ability to reserve classrooms free of charge and the opportunity to apply for funding through the Office of Student Services (OSS). Registration also establishes a means for on-going communication between student organizations and USG Administration, which can provide support, stability and guidance when needed.

How do You join or establish a new student organization?

Students interested in joining or establishing an organization should review the current Student Organization Directory, which lists all currently registered USG Student Organizations and contact information for each, or download a copy of the USG Student Organization Handbook, which gives step-by-step instructions for forming a new group or club.

For more information about USG student organizations please contact Rachel Wolohan at 301.738.6137 or at rwolohan@umd.edu

Student organization orientation

The Student Organization Orientation is an important event because the orientation
will cover how to register your organization, reserve space, submit budget
requests and more. This also can be a great opportunity for you to meet other
student club/organization members to collaborate with on future events. If you are
interested in starting a new organization or reviving a defunct organization,
the orientation is the place to be.

There is an open floor where each student club/organization has the opportunity to make announcements of what their group is doing and to promote upcoming events. For more information about the orientation, please contact rwolohan@umd.edu
