URSU’s Student advocate is a great resource for students facing all kinds of challenges. She is here to answer questions on Student Loan Appeals, EBF, and disciplinary procedures and she offers all the services of a Notary Public for free to all students. Currently this position is vacant, so not all services are available.
The Owl & the Multipurpose room
The Owl is URSU’s campus bar. Everyday, the bar is open providing both great food at great prices to all members of the University Community, as well as providing great jobs for students on campus. The Owl also hosts a ton of different events and acts as a space for all students to come and study, relax or just have fun.
The Multipurpose room is exactly what you’d think – a multi-use venue with a maximum capacity of 300 for events of all kinds. Whether it’s a bake sale, a concert or a video-game tournament, this is space is exactly what students need.
Clubs and Societies can access both of these spaces to host their own events
While many of URSU’s Member Services Desk inquiries can be accessed online, the following services can only be accessed online. Check them out;
