The Student Organization Center located in the Student Union (SU 2.416) is the ‘campus hub’ for student organizations and campus events. Commonly referred to as the SOC, the Student Organization Center helps UT Dallas students become more connected
to campus life. We provide resources and services for student organizations and for students interested in participating in the many activities at UT Dallas. We encourage all UT Dallas students to Explore.Engage.Create.
The Student Organization Center staff members are here to help. We serve as resources, advisors, and educators. Rely on SOC staff members for clarification, guidance and advice. We take great pride in our work to support students as well as the
educational mission of The University of Texas at Dallas.
The Student Organization Center (SOC) maintains current information on each registered student organization, its officers or authorized representatives, its purpose, and its advisor. A student wishing to contact an organization may readily find
information by visiting the SOC Office or by searching the Registered Student Organization database at utdallas.edu/soc.
