Registered Campus Organizations

Registered Campus Organizations (RCOs) are a very important part of campus life. Each year there are more than 170 RCOs at UCSF. These organizations cover a broad range of interests, including educational, social, cultural, artistic, recreational, political and spiritual. These organizations combine to sponsor over 2,000 diverse and exciting activities each year. Consider joining or forming an RCO as a great investment of your out-of-classroom time. Hundreds of UCSF students meet lifetime friends and create a deeper sense of community in just this way.
