The DigiPen campus is more than a collection of classrooms. It’s a home and community for a diverse population of students who share many similar interests, hobbies, and skills. The atmosphere of collaboration, competition, and passion that the DigiPen student body embodies has produced a learning environment that exists nowhere else in the world. For over 30 years, this has been a place where an uncommon mix of aspiring game makers, scientists, engineers, artists, and musicians have come together and belonged.
This community spirit is evident in the dozens of student-run clubs and organizations that meet on campus throughout the year. It can also be seen in our constant efforts to create a safer, more inclusive environment for all students.
Throughout their time at DigiPen, we encourage students to cultivate a social awareness of the broader world around them and a shared sense of personal responsibility when working with others. Not only does this have a positive impact on our campus, it also inspires students to enter their professional lives ready to foster healthy, welcoming workplaces.

Clubs and Student Organizations
Dozens of student groups meet on campus to enjoy shared interests in gaming, arts and entertainment, science, culture, and more. A sample of current and past clubs and organizations are listed here, as well as the process to form new clubs.
Composed of dedicated student performers, the DigiPen Jazz Ensemble performs at events both on-campus as well as throughout the Redmond area. The ensemble is a fun way for students to earn academic credit and hone their musicianship at the same time.
As part of our mission to create an inclusive campus for students of every gender and sexual orientation, we have made many resources available to LGBTQ-identifying students and allies. This includes diversity events regularly scheduled on campus, career and counseling services, as well as inclusive housing, bathroom, and preferred name policies.
Student Engagement Opportunities
Students have many opportunities to support the DigiPen community in a variety of on-campus jobs. Every year, we hire students in academic, residential, and administrative positions that help build up their work experience while developing invaluable leadership and communication skills.
