Student Community

There's more to college than classes. Get involved and take advantage of new experiences, health and wellness resources, and opportunities to connect with other students. From student organizations to resources, including the Pride Center, the Klotz Student Health Center and the Student Recreation Center, you’re sure to find the people and places at CSUN to meet your needs. CSUN’s Dream Center provides resources and a community for undocumented students.

Greek life

CSUN is home to more than 40 fraternity and sorority chapters totaling 1,400 members. If Greek life is for you, recruitment happens at the beginning of fall and spring semesters. Not sure which sorority or fraternity you'd like to join? Try attending a few different rush events to find the right group for you.

If you're already interested in a specific Greek organization, check to see if they have a chapter on campus, or visit the Matador Involvement Center for more information. 

Intramural sports

You don't need to be an athlete to play sports at CSUN. Our intramural program is a great way to meet friends and have a good time. You can join teams like Ultimate Frisbee, flag football, dodgeball, volleyball, basketball and more through the Associated Students sports clubs.

Klotz Student Health Center

The Klotz Student Health Center is open Monday-Friday for both appointments and walk-in visits, and services are provided at little to no cost for enrolled students. Physicians are board-certified in family medicine, gynecology, internal and sports medicine, and specialists are available in chiropractic services, dentistry, massage therapy, optometry, physical therapy, podiatry, substance use, and women's and men's health.

Oasis Wellness Center

Life as a college student can get overwhelming. Take a break and refocus at the Oasis Wellness Center. Opened in September 2015, the Oasis Wellness Center offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxation and reflection. You can also sign up for acupuncture, massages, meditation, nap pods, nutrition counseling and wellness workshops.

Pride Center

The Pride Center at CSUN is a supportive resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer and questioning students (LGBTQ). The Peer Mentor Program, CSUN Ally Program, Tuesday Talks and LGBTQ Coffee Nights are just a few of the programs that the Pride Center offers to promote respect and safety for all members of the CSUN community.

Student groups

From salsa dancing to sailing, Buddhism to business law, and chess to Chicano culture, there are more than 300 student clubs and organizations to choose from at CSUN. If you can't find a club or organization that matches your interests, the Matador Involvement Center can help you start your own.

Student Recreation Center

Whether you’re a gym rat or not, the Student Recreation Center (SRC) is available to help you stay active. The 100,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art SRC features a gymnasium and multi-activity courts, weight and fitness spaces, and rooms for aerobics, martial arts, spinning and dance classes. The facility also features a rock-climbing wall and boxing studio in addition to a field complex, an indoor track and an outdoor pool. The SRC houses the offices for intramural sports, sport clubs, Open Recreation and outdoor adventures, as well as aquatics and fitness centers.
