Starting other groups
U of T Groups
You can view a list of all recognized University of Toronto groups on the Student Organization Portal.
To start a new U of T group, you will need to apply for campus recognition through the Student Organization Portal. Recognition by the University of Toronto affords groups the following privileges:
- The right to use the University’s name in conjunction with your activities. Only officially recognized campus groups may use “University of Toronto” in the name of the organization.
- Use of University facilities and meeting spaces at a lower cost or at no cost (compared to external organizations).
- Access to group email accounts, listservs, portal space and other services.
- Listings in directories provided to the University community, including the Student Organization Portal and the University event calendar. Most groups at the University of Toronto seek recognition.
Rotman Commerce Affiliate Groups
Rotman Commerce affiliate recognition and support is available for student groups where a large percentage of their members are Rotman Commerce students and most of their programming is complementary to the Rotman Commerce student experience and curriculum.
To qualify, your group must already be officially recognized by the University of Toronto through the Office of Student Life (Student Organization Portal).
Rotman Commerce is currently undergoing a review for affiliate groups and is not accepting new affiliate group requests at the time being – check back Winter 2023 for updates.
