The Committee for the Allocation of Student Activity Space (CASAS) allocates space on the St. George campus for campus groups, student societies and multi-faith needs.
CASAS allocates the 50+ shared office spaces available at the 21 Sussex Clubhouse.
Student representatives–four in total–are nominated or appointed by the University of Toronto Students Union (UTSU), Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students (APUS) and Graduate Students Union (GSU).
Nominations for three additional students are received and assessed by the Vice-Provost Students in December of each year. Students will be selected to represent broad student interests.
How The Program Works
CASAS meets in March/April to review applications and allocate the space for a one-year term. For more information on the application process, visit club office space.

Considerations & Exceptions
Historical context for CASAS
In 1999, the University had a Task Force on Student Activity Space examine the issues surrounding space availability for three main areas of student activity: campus groups, student societies and multi-faith needs.
One of the outcomes of the task force’s report was to strike a committee to allocate the determined space. It was named the Committee for the Allocation of Student Activity Space (CASAS). CASAS today allocates the 50+ shared office spaces available in the 21 Sussex Clubhouse.
