Starting a new organization?
Before you start your own organization, look through our current organization listing to see if there is an existing organization that is working toward a similar goal and purpose.
Student organizations are an essential part of the University of Florida community and play a vital role in providing important learning opportunities and a rich and diverse campus life experience for UF students. All student organizations are subject to the rules of the University of Florida including the Student Conduct Code and Academic Honesty Guidelines. Registered student organizations have access to designated University resources (including possible eligibility for funding, priority use of University facilities, and posting on the Student Activities and Involvement web page) pursuant to applicable University rules, regulations, and guidelines, including the Student Organization Handbook.
