The University of Washington recognizes that self-governing student organizations can and do contribute to the educational, social and recreational and personal development of its students.

The University further recognizes that students should be free to organize and participate in voluntary associations of their own choosing, subject to University policies and ensuring that such associations are neither discriminatory in their treatment of other members of the academic community nor operate in a manner which interferes with the rights of others.

The University does not sponsor or accept responsibility for these voluntary student organizations. Voluntary student organizations that register with the University may, however, use certain University facilities on a space available basis consistent with University rules and regulations.
