Become a DOS member
Becoming a DOS member is easy and free of charge for all Dalhousie students. All you need to do is fill out the form, listed below, and sign our new year-long waiver. This waiver encompasses the vast majority of activities DOS participates in, but additional DSU waivers may be required for higher risk events. Moving forward only DOS members will be able to participate in DOS trips, and make use of the gear library — this is so we can ensure that you, or your guardian, has signed the waiver.
Note: your membership expires on May 1st of each year, and must be renewed to continue accessing DOS services.

You can now complete your 2023/24 DOS membership! 2022/23 memberships will be expired as of April 30th, 2023.

Note: Students under 18 years old must have a legal guardian sign also.
Submit the form to become a DOS member here.
Once you have submitted your form, please attend a DOS office hour to pick up your membership card. Office hours are found here. We can be found in room 340 on the third floor of the SUB. Your membership card can be shown to trip leaders so they know your waiver has been signed, and will also grant you use of the gear library. Each year when you renew your membership, a new stamp will be given to show renewal. On top of membership cards giving access to all of DOS' resources, they also get you discounts at many local adventure retailers and outfitters — check out all member benefits here.
