Student Services

As a Santa Clara student, you’ll probably ask a lot of questions. What is my place in the universe? How can technology support the needs of the developing world? What should I do if I lose my student ID card?

Our Student Services offices can help you answer at least one of those questions, and hundreds more. Can’t find the office or service you need? Contact the Office of Student Life.
