CSI Resources

The Center for Student Involvement serves a central resource for student organizations. We provide basic services to many student organizations such as office/carrel/storage space, mailboxes, and access to set up UH websites and e-mail addresses. Please see below for the appropriate information.


Application information for carrel and locker space in University Center North

The first phase of the Transformed University Center Complex opens its doors in January 2014.  UC North, a new facility, will be the home for student organizations. One of the most exciting aspects of this new facility is the new Registered Student Organization (RSO) locker and carrel areas, providing dedicated lockers and organizational carrels for over a hundred student organizations. Each locker is 12 cubic feet (2’x2’x3’), and each carrel is approximately 64 square feet. Carrels will have electrical and internet connections.

The carrel and locker spaces are being made available to currently registered student organizations in good standing with the Center for Student Involvement. The top three officers in each RSO are eligible to submit an application for their RSO via the web link below. The priority deadline for submissions is October 18, 2013 for initial consideration. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis as long as vacancies are available: https://uh.collegiatelink.net/form/start/28951


Mailboxes

Student organizations are required to maintain a mailbox at the University so that mail, important notices from the Center for Student Involvement, and information can be distributed to the student organizations easily. Student organizations have the option of choosing the location of their mailboxes.  RSOs can opt to use a mailbox through a sponsoring office or department (if that option is available). For those organizations that may not have that option, the Center for Student Involvement does have a limited number of mailboxes available for student organizations.

Student organizations that are interested in obtaining a mailbox through the Center for Student Involvement will need to submit the request during the Organization Registration process. Due to the high number of RSOs that have requested mailboxes, RSOs will be required to check their mailbox once a week.  RSOs that fail to check their mailbox once a week may lose the privilege of having a mailbox.


E-mail Accounts

Another privilege that student organizations can take advantage of is the opportunity to get an e-mail account through the University of Houston. 

Student organizations that are interested in getting an e-mail account or having the University host a website may pick up a form at the Center for Student Involvement or download the “Sponsored Student Organization Account Application” form.  Please submit the form to the Center for Student Involvement and we will Sponsor the application.


Campus Leaders Reception

Held once a year in April, the Campus Leaders Reception is an opportunity for the Center for Student Involvement to recognize top student leaders, individuals, organizations, and programs.  Over the course of the Campus Leaders Reception, there are 17 awards that are presented to individuals, organizations, and events.  The Center for Student Involvement highly encourages individuals and organizations to submit nominations prior to the Reception so that our student leaders and top organizations can get recognized for their achievements.
