What is a Registered Campus Organization (RCO)?
Essentially a "club," an RCO is an organized student group of 3 or more that share an interest, passion, or goal. RCOs function similarly to an on-campus entity (while they officially are 3rd party entities) and must comply with specific campus regulations and earn certain privileges in return. For more detailed information, please visit the Campus Organization Regulations and Privileges page.
Does your student group need to become an RCO?
Not all groups of students function like an RCO. However, if your group plans on hosting events, fundraising, recruiting new members, scheduling on-campus spaces, or advertising on campus, then you need to become an RCO. We currently have over 400 RCO's on campus, so if you're thinking of starting a new RCO, check out all the currently registered organizations first on Shoreline!

Each RCO, based on its registration category, has an assigned Student Life Intern Peer Advisor and University Advisor. In general, and so that you receive prompt service, we recommend that you start by working with your dedicated Peer Advisor, who will connect you with a University Advisor.
