The Information Desk has a check-out key for each student organization that has an office in the Student Involvement Suite, located on the ground floor of the Stamp.  The president of each organization must fill out a Student Office Key Check-Out form in order to give group members access to the office key.  A downloadable PDF of the form can be accessed here. Organization presidents must update their group members on the STARS website in order for members to be authorized.  Keys must be returned to the Information Desk prior to leaving the Stamp.  There is a charge for lost keys.

Office Allocation Applications for the upcoming academic year occur in the spring semester.  For more information about the office allocation process please visit the Stamp Advisory Board

Student organizations and campus departments are encouraged to advertise their events within the campus community.  The Stamp offers three locations to place flyers and handbills advertising on-campus events.  Flyers and handbills may be placed at the Information Desk flyer rack; the Student Involvement Suite bulletin board; and the bulletin board in the basement level of Stamp.  Due to the volume of events on-campus, posting on the bulletin boards and flyer rack is limited to two weeks prior to the event date.
