Finding Community

Engaging with a supportive community is crucial to your success as a student and for your well-being as a person. Our campus reflects the diversity of the Bay Area, and UCSF offers many ways to connect with affinity groups and allies. Discover all the different ways to build communities at UCSF.


Get Involved and Get Connected

Build connections through UCSF's diversity and outreach initiatives and international student events.

Connect with other students with similar interests. Whether you're interested in science communications, experimental dance, public health issues, or exploring your family heritage, there's bound to be a registered campus organization for you. Check out the existing campus organizations at UCSF, or start one of your own.

Represent student interests and lead through participation in student government. Meet new friends while improving student life at UCSF and across the UC system.

Have fun outside of the classroom! Take a hike in the Marin Headlands, play a game of Scrabble on game night, or rent a cabin for a weekend ski trip.
