NEW! At this year's Fall Activities Fair, the Student Activities Office will be introducing a limited number of 'interactive spaces'. Interactive spaces are 10'x10' areas that allow student groups to host an engaging activity that would typically not work with a traditional tabling set up. If your group is interested in participating in the Fall Activities Fair, please select your preferred involvement options in the fields below. If your group indicates interest in an interactive space, the Student Activities Office will follow up with further information.


$15 per fair due to the Student Activities Office (Coffman Memorial Union 126) by Monday, July 15th.

Your spot will not be confirmed until payment has been received, and there will be no refunds given.

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs): pay by cash or check at the Student Activities Office. Please write checks to the University of Minnesota and include your student group name and ID number on the memo line. If mailing your payment, use the following address and do not send cash:
