About Us

University of Virginia students have varied interests and ideas, many of which are realized through involvement in student organizations and activities. Student Activities is here to provide resources which help you turn your ideas into reality. Within the philosophy of student self-governance, where students learn by participating and leading, our mission is to promote learning and community engagement through student involvement.

Located on the first floor and lower level of Newcomb Hall, you will find a team of student staff, student volunteers, and professional staff who can help you find your place at UVA through involvement in a student organization, participating in an event, involving yourself in student government, or creating something new.

A unit of the Office of the Dean of Students, this team works together to provide resources including the Student Activities Center, Media Activities Center, student organization support, programs and activities.
