Frequently Asked Questions

How does a UW Seattle student join a Registered Student Organization?

Students can search for RSOs by category or keyword in the RSO Directory. After finding an RSO in the directory, students are encouraged to email the RSO and find out when they meet and how to join.

How does one know if a group is active?

If a group is listed in the RSO Directory, they are active. To be active RSOs register or re-register each academic year. Registrations sessions begin in September and are held throughout the academic year. If a group fails to re-register, they are deactivated and NOT listed in the RSO Directory.

When does my RSO need to submit a Use of University Facilities (UUF) request form?

An approved UUF is needed for events that are held outdoors, are open to the general public, off-campus guests will be attending, are political in nature, or involve private or commercial sponsors.
