The three University Unions buildings serve as "homes" to many student organizations. Getting involved in a student organization is a great way to learn skills that may not be available as part of a formal academic curriculum and have fun at the same time!
OSAC Selection Information 2013-2014 - See results of Student Organization Office Space Allocation.
University Unions houses and provides a comprehensive array of offices and services to assist student organizations. Maize Pages serves as the University of Michigan's online directory of over 1,000 student organizations. To get involved visit the Center for Campus Involvement in the Michigan Union.
The Division of Student Affairs allows student organizations to apply for office space through the Office Space Allocation Committee (OSAC). Designated spaces are assigned in the Michigan League, Michigan Union, Pierpont Commons, and Trotter Multicultural Center. The assignment of office space to a student organization in these facilities is considered to be a privilege, not a right.
Any MSA-recognized student organization can reserve a meeting room in the unions. For event planning in any of the union buildings please check out this helpful student meeting planning guide.
The Unions also house several organization support services, all dedicated to helping student organizations to achieve their goals and realize their visions.
Student Organization Accounts Services (SOAS) is an active partner in helping your organization. Our services include those you might expect of any financial institution, managing your accounts including monthly itemized statements of activity, space reservations, and assistance with University purchasing, In addition to helping you manage your account we can help you search for funding.
Center for Campus Involvement
Center for Campus Involvement (the Center) manages several services for student organizations including the SORC and STAC. The Center also offers many co-sponsorship oppotunities.

The Center also hosts three student organization recruitment fairs (Festifall, Northfest and Winterfest) which allow students to Get Involved on-campus, discover numerous resources, and find out about campus events and opportunities.
