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.
Office, Carrel, and Storage Space
The Center for Student Involvement has limited office, carrel, and storage space available for RSOs. Office and carrel space provide a working area for student organizations to utilize for organization business. Storage space allows student organizations an on-campus place to hold property that belongs to the organization. The office, carrel, and storage space is allocated through an application process.
Student organizations that are allocated office spaces will be required to complete at least 15 office hours a week. Organizations that are allocated carrel spaces will be required to complete at least 5 office hours a week.
Student organizations interested in applying for any of the spaces may submit the Application for Organization Office/Carrel Space to the Center for Student Involvement Front Desk in the UC Underground. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
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.
Another privilege that student organizations can take advantage of is the opportunity to get an e-mail account through the University of Houston.
The University of Houston can also host student organization websites. Student organizations must be able to maintain their own websites. The Center for Student Involvement and the University of Houston are not able to maintain student organization websites.
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.
