Clubs established on campus benefit students academically and socially, as well as improve our already vibrant community. The Club Council is composed of passionate and dedicated student leaders who are committed to serving clubs and building community at UW Bothell. These student leaders support club members, empower students, and maximize student voice in decisionmaking.
The Club Council handles recognition, training, and funding for clubs, as well provides constant support for club success. Club Council meetings will be held on a regular basis. In most cases, clubs submitting funding requests must present to the Club Council for approval. Violations of disciplinary or financial guidelines may also be heard by the Club Council. Please contact Club Council for any and all questions regarding clubs and student organizations at UW Bothell.
Join a Club
Club involvement is a great way to connect with others while gaining experience, leadership, and skills. You can see a full list of current clubs, as well as join one or more clubs, through our club directory on GatherUWB. You may need to log in with your UW NetID. We have dozens of clubs in a number of different categories, including:
- Cultural & international
- Health & wellness
- Political & social action
- Recreation & leisure
- Special interests
- Student life
- Volunteer & service
If you went through the club directory on Presence and didn’t see a club that exactly matched your interests, consider starting a new club. It’s easy!
If you need assistance with the club directory, Presence, or contacting Club Council, please email email@example.com.
Start a Club
Whether there is a new club starting on campus, or a returning club from last year, Club Council guides the process of club registration. Clubs must be registered on campus in order to reserve a room, request funding for events, check out materials from the club resource room, and other benefits detailed in the Club Handbook.
