How do I start a campus chapter at my school?
In order to be officially recognized as a Habitat for Humanity campus chapter, your group must be chartered by Habitat for Humanity International.
Step 1. Make sure your school does not already have a campus chapter.
Locate a campus chapter to search for your school. If your school is not listed, your school does not already have an active campus chapter.
Step 2. Read the Prospective Campus Chapters Toolkit.
Before you apply to become a Habitat for Humanity campus chapter, be sure to read the Prospective Campus Chapters Toolkit (.pdf). This toolkit is a collection of resources to help you learn more about the Campus Chapters program and start organizing your campus chapter. Once you follow the steps detailed in the Prospective Campus Chapters Toolkit, you will be prepared to complete the campus chapter application.
Step 3. Complete and submit the application between Feb. 1 and Sept. 15.
Once you have a complete understanding of the Campus Chapters program and have determined that your group is ready to apply, download the Campus Chapter Application.
