Become a DOS member

Becoming a DOS member is easy and free of charge for all Dalhousie students! Please fill out the form and sign our year-long waiver below. This waiver encompasses the vast majority of activities DOS participates in, but additional DSU waivers may be required for higher risk events. You must be a member to participate in DOS trips and make use of the gear library!

Note: memberships expire on April 30th of each year, and must be renewed to continue accessing DOS services.

You can now complete your 2024/25 DOS membership!

1) Download and submit the form to become a DOS member here. (This must be done to renew membership for each new year)

2) Visit us during a Gear Library 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.

2024/2025 memberships will be expired as of April 30th, 2025. Each year when you renew your membership, a new stamp will be given.
