The Royal Roads University Student Association (RRUSA) is incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia as the University's undergraduate student association.
All registered undergraduate learners who have paid their student fees are members of the RRUSA, and may vote in elections and referendums, establish and join organizations under the control of RRUSA, nominate or be nominated for the Executive or Council, and stand for election or hold office. The RRUSA serves as a collective undergraduate voice, liaises with the University on a variety of issues, provides ongoing activities and events for learners, and administers the undergraduate extended healthcare plan.
Offices and Elections
Election times are staggered to accommodate the different program start-dates. Executive positions, which include the President, Vice-President of Finance, and Vice-President of Communications, are twelve-month terms, elected in October.
The council is comprised of cohort representatives, sometimes called class representatives. These positions are elected within the first few weeks of a program's start date, and extend the length of the incumbant's program.
What does the RRUSA offer?
RRUSA Peer Support Program
The Peer Support team is here to provide you with social, emotional and academic support for all Royal Roads Students. They are specially trained in reflective listening and have a vast knowledge of the on-campus and off-campus resources that are available to students.
Students can connect with a Peer Support Volunteer through their anonymous live chat button on the Peer Sypport website or in person during their "office hours" during the lunch hour every Wednesday in the Habitat Cafe.
