Student Engagement

The full university experience is not complete without a healthy balance of engagement in activities outside the classroom. The Student Engagement Team facilitates the introduction to a wide array of student run clubs and organizations.

You may also want to visit our service kiosk - previously situated in the centre of Vari Hall, but now virtual, online and staffed by our student peer team, ready to connect you with the essential campus resources and services you need.
