Student Groups

Being a part of a student group is a great way to get involved on your university campus. Joining a student group can help you connect with other students on campus that share similar interests. You can join an existing student group or start your own.

There are two kinds of student groups:

Recognized Groups
This group is comprised of a majority of current University of Winnipeg students. The group must not have any positions that are paid by an outside organization(s), or have consistent funding or support from external organizations or chapters with the exception of the University of Winnipeg and its academic departments or the Canadian Federation of Students.
Only Recognized Groups may apply for additional funding.

Affiliated Groups
This group is comprised of University of Winnipeg students and non-University of Winnipeg students, including community members and members from external organizations or institutions. Affiliated Groups may have consistent funding or support from external organizations or chapters.


*All student groups must complete our online Positive Space training before being approved.

With the majority of classes being offered virtually and limited campus access in Fall 2020, UWSA is working to revamp student group benefits listed on the website to offer affordable alternatives to support groups virtually and off-campus. A new list of benefits will be available on the website in mid-August.
