Haas Center Resources

The Haas Center for Public Service offers resources to all student groups, including Cardinal Commitment organizations.

Meeting space

The Haas Center has meeting spaces available for student organizations during regular business hours (M–F, 8:00am–6:00pm, excluding university holidays) or after hours. 

If the Haas Center cannot accommodate you, try these alternative campus meeting spaces

  • Before requesting space, please review the Haas Center's space use policies and the Haas Room Schedules and Information. Student organizations who do not abide by policy can be denied use of spaces.
  • Weekly meetings need to be requested on a quarterly basis. Granting access to spaces will depend on whether the requested space is available and whether the student organization agrees to and honors the policies and expectations for using space at the Haas Center.

Request space

Storage space

Registered student organizations may request storage space to store group-related materials. Storage space is extremely limited and the spaces are not secure. Anything of significant value should be stored somewhere else.

If you are part of the Cardinal Commitment program, the Haas Center offers grants to support your service work, including reimbursement for transportation to and from your public service location.

Activity toolkits 

Activity toolkits are available to assist you and your group in facilitating activities that help promote a sense of community, build leadership skills, and achieve goals for your organization. Contact the Haas Center advising staff if you would like to borrow one.

Office and craft supplies

A wide variety of office and craft supplies are available to groups in the cabinets underneath student organization mailboxes (across from the BIRC on the first floor).  Sets of colored markers, flip chart and butcher paper, poster board, stickers, felt, glue sticks, glitter, colored paper, scissors and more are also available.

If your group needs a large volume of supplies, please check with us to see if we can provide them for you. Wait to order office supplies for your group until after you check to see if we can provide them to you for free. Please contact Haas Center advising if you can't find what you're looking for or need to order more.

Button maker

Our industrial grade button maker continues to be overwhelmingly popular.  Visit the BIRC on the first floor to learn about how you can make 2.25” buttons to promote your next student group event. We have supplies for student organizations to make up to 50 buttons – if you need to make more, we’ll tell you how to get your own supplies. Contact Haas Center advising to reserve the button maker.

Receiving mail

The Haas Center has a limited number of small mailboxes available for student organization use. We can’t accommodate large volumes of mail; if your organization needs to receive a large volume of mail on a regular basis, P.O. boxes are available through the post office on campus and can be purchased through your ASSU account. All uses of the Haas Center address for receiving and sending mail must comply with the Haas Center Name Use policy.
