Huskie Link

Huskie Link is a web-based platform to help manage your student organization(s). This system will allow you to track your organization rosters and improve communication among organization members. Additionally, Huskie Link will allow you to register and update organizations and events electronically, thus eliminating the need for paper submission of forms.

Huskie Link helps you discover new organizations to become involved in and learn about events throughout campus.

The Student Association will no longer accept paper forms for organization registration or officer updates. Organizations will be required to utilize Huskie Link to complete these tasks. All event planning forms must also be completed using Huskie Link.

If you need assistance registering your organization via Huskie Link, please stop by the Student Association in Campus Life Building, 180.
