How to Start a New Student Club or Organization

Don’t see an org that fits your interests? Start one! We’re excited to help you start a new community and have created a process to make it happen.

*Organizations that have been inactive for a semester or more (according to the Re-Registration process each semester) will need to re-apply through this process as well.


Step 1

Schedule a meeting with the Office of Student Engagement to discuss the proposed organization, the application process, and related policies. Email to set up this meeting!

Step 2

Fill out the “New Student Organization Request” form on BruinLink. We will review new org requests on September 15, November 15, February 15, April 15, and July 15. Follow this link to submit a request.

Step 3

Wait for follow-up from the Office of Student Engagement. We will contact you within 2 weeks of the application deadline. Please hold off on any organizational activity* until your approval is granted. 

Step 4

Now that you’re up and running, personalize your organization’s BruinLink page. BruinLink is the place where club leaders can reserve space on campus, communicate activities to members and the Belmont community, and receive information about all policies and procedures. 

*NOTE: If you want to gauge interest in a club before officially starting one, you’re able to host up to 3 meetings in campus spaces without being an official org. Just email to reserve space.
