Whether you're an avid tea drinker or a recreational basketball player there is a club or society for you. For a full list, visit Tiger Society - there's over 280 to choose from.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

The Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students is an organization that represents graduate students at Dal. They are advocates for graduate students, and offer services including grants, opportunities and events. 

INTERNATIONAL CENTRE

The International Centre hosts fun and informative orientation programs, cultural events, provides a welcoming lounge, referral and advising related to immigration, health care, finances, travel, and more.

LGBTQ+ & GENDER SAFE PLACES

Dal Allies offer programs, services, training, support, referrals, and resources to members of the Dalhousie Rainbow community.

South House is a volunteer-driven, student-funded DSU service and Halifax’s only full-time women’s centre. It’s a gender-inclusive safe space for all members of the Dalhousie community. 

ABORIGINAL STUDENTS

If you’re a student of First Nations descent, the Aboriginal Student Centre can help you form support networks in your studies. It also hosts social activities, cultural events, and information sessions.

OFF-CAMPUS STUDENTS

As a student living off campus, feeling connected to the university and each other can be challenging. Dal Off Campus has community students and a lounge just for you.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNITIES

The Dalhousie Multifaith Centre is a non-threatening space where students, staff, and faculty can address the basic questions of meaning and purpose in their lives — no matter what their faith, philosophy, or doubt may be.
