Clubs & Groups at Trent University fit primarily into one of two separate classifications: Associated Clubs and Levy Groups.

Associated Clubs are student organizations that organize on a year-to-year basis but are not directly funded through a dedicated levy fee. In order to be recognized by the TCSA and the University, these groups must consist of at least five undergraduate Trent students, have ten signatures of support, and must complete a registration process with the TCSA each year.

Levy Groups receive direct funding from a student fee (called a levy) that is charged to each full-time undergraduate student with their tuition and ancillary fees. Most levy organizations are student groups, however, there are some levy groups that, while not student-run, are connected to the University community in various ways. They may offer a service or benefit to Trent students, or they are organizations that Trent students have chosen to support financially. All levy fees must be approved by a referendum of the student body before they can be charged to student accounts.

Associated Clubs who choose to register with the TCSA are eligible for funding grants, other assistance and a list of benefits including:

• The ability to use the Trent University name and logo 

• Eligibility to apply for funding through the TCSA and the Colleges 

• The ability to appear on the Co-Curricular record
