The Student Service Fee allocates $1.8 million in activity fee funding to eligible undergraduate and graduate student organizations every year.

The Student Service Fees Committee is made up of the Chair, the Comptroller, the Subcommittee Chairs, and representatives from the Dean of Students Office. On an annual basis they review applications for student organizational funding and allocate a portion of the Activity Fee paid by each student. They also review applications to the Student Service Fee Contingency Fund (Collaboration and Innovation Fund) on a rolling basis.

APPLYING FOR FUNDING

Applications for student activity fee allocations are due in the spring semester preceding the academic year applied for. Organisations receive half of their allocations in the fall semester and half in the spring semester.

Eligibility requirements can be found on the Student Service Fee’s AnchorLink page.
