Official Student Organisations in NUS
NUS has more than 200 official student organisations. These are the only student organisations that are allowed to use the NUS name and trademarks. If you are intending to use the NUS name and trademarks as part of the student organisation’s name or identity, you are required to register with the Office of Student Affairs.
