We encorage you to contact us at least one business day in advance of your ideal appointment time. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please contact Student Activities at or (612) 626-6919. Appointments can be scheduled on regular business days, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. The Student Activities Office is located on the first floor of Coffman Union, Room 126.

Advisor Toolkit

The Student Group Advisor Toolkit was compiled to support advisors as the University transitions into the upcoming terms. The toolkit includes templates, information specific to Campus Life Programs, student group exercises and much more. The resources included in this toolkit are not exhaustive and will be updated throughout the academic year.

Student Group Communications

The Student Activities Office communicates regularly with student groups through an email newsletter called the Student Group Newsletter and direct messages. Our communications are automatically sent to all groups' officers, primary contacts and advisors as reflected on the groups' GopherLink profile.

If you would like to receive the Student Group Newsletter, please complete this form.
