Student Organisations and Fifth Row

Co-curricular activities, also known as Fifth Row activities in SUTD are an important aspect of the holistic education of our students.
Some Fifth Rows include Student Organisations, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme, the Undergraduate Teaching Opportunities Programme and the Undergraduate Practice Opportunities Programme. These activities provide students with opportunities to develop holistically, to their fullest potential, and to promote campus vibrancy.
Student Organisations are an important component of Fifth Row. There are over 80 student groups on campus, and they are grouped into 5 clusters:

  • Arts
  • Community
  • Sports
  • Culture
  • Makers

Check out the Fifth Row directory for the full list. Also, find out more about past Fifth Row activities.

Student Government

The Student Government serves you and upholds your interests. Our members act as welfare custodians, bringing students, staff and faculty together through effective communication. We are the catalyst for Student Initiatives, encouraging spontaneity and breaking convention. We also work hand-in-hand with all the student clubs to promote the growth of the students as well as the development of their ideas and passion.

To foster strong synergy amongst the deeply diverse groups, the student clubs are categorised into five clusters led by cluster representatives. The clusters are arts, culture, community, makers and sports.
