Create a Tutoring & Mentoring Program on Your Campus

Powerful Pairings

Help students harness the power of their network by creating a tutoring & mentoring program on your campus! Configure automated matching for tutors, mentors, incoming students and alumni.

Students connect and book time-slots online. This is a great way to:

  • Facilitate student-directed tutoring match-ups and communications
  • Set up mock interviews with alumni
  • Match club, publication and journal mentors with new leaders
  • Connect incoming students with student ambassadors





The new mentoring feature is now available in beta under 'More' > 'Mentoring'. Add tutors, or let them apply to become a tutor online. New tutors can add their availability time-slots online and start communicating directly with the tutors.

Just sit back and watch as students easily access tutors and mentors from within their own network! You will also be able to download reports once everything is in motion.

What's New: Upload Multiple Events at Once

Upload many events into the system at once

It's very easy to upload even thousands of events in seconds. Just fill in a spreadsheet and upload everything in one click. This is very useful at the beginning of the year when your school, department or club has a lot of events already planned. For repeat events and conferences, uploading many events at once also means you won't have to keep reentering them manually.

Organize classes

Some schools are benefitting from the platform by organizing classes with two single-click uploads, one for each semester. This is a very quick solution to facilitate coordination of classes and schedules on campus.

See conflicting events

Additionally, when schools use the room reservations system with us, they will know automatically when an event is conflicting with others. See conflicting events at any time and download them into an Excel file.

CampusGroups Integrates with Key Partners

Single Sign-On Authentication

Your students already have enough to remember. Enabling SSO authentication allows them to access all their campus information with a single username and password.

CampusGroups' login system can be integrated with a number of SSO authentication services so that active students, faculty and staff can log in to the platform using their school credentials for a simple, secure and consolidated experience.

Payment Gateways

Safely and securely process payments directly within CampusGroups for transactions such as event registrations, tickets, organization and membership fees, merchandise and more.

CampusGroups integrates with many payment gateways to accept credit cards worldwide:


Seizing the day is easier when you know what opportunities are happening on your campus. We want students to have every possible opportunity available to them.

To help students stay on top of events, meetings and all activities going on around them, CampusGroups enables users to export their events to external calendars.

You can subscribe to an ICS feed from your preferred calendar or synchronize CampusGroups ICS feeds with an iOS device (iPhone or iPad).

Learning Management System (LMS)

Unify student resources: CampusGroups' seamless integration provides one-click access to Blackboard, one of the largest Learning Management Systems in the higher education landscape. We are able to create widgets within Blackboard, pulling data from CampusGroups to display information about the students such as group memberships and events. Accordingly, if a student is part of 20 groups, we are able to display the 20 groups in Blackboard.

Room Reservations

Easily reserve the perfect place for your needs, when you create an event in CampusGroups. CampusGroups' Event Management System integrates seamlessly with the EMS Room Reservation system, allowing administrators and students to search for and reserve available rooms, filtering by date, capacity and other room features.

Campusgroups also offers its own powerful room reservation module that integrates even more seamlessly, allowing you to maintain one fully centralized system for everything! Please contact us for more info at support@campusgroups.com.


Career Management offices create and manage many events each year, from workshops to on-site career fairs and one-on-one advising sessions. CampusGroups integrates with a leader in MBA graduate recruiting, MBA Focus (now GradLeaders).

This integration allows Career Departments who use MBA Focus to automatically add events they have created to CampusGroups by simply checking a checkbox, preventing double-entries. Events also get updated in CampusGroups each time a change is made in MBA Focus, keeping everything perfectly in sync.

Even better, event registrations and attendance reported in CampusGroups can then be automatically uploaded back to MBA Focus for career staff, administrators and corporate partners to view.

Contact Relationship Management (CRM)

Thanks to the CampusGroups API, your data can be in sync with your central CRM system. One of the main uses of our API is to udpate student profiles in both directions, ensuring core data is collected and synchronized on both systems. 

  • When an update is made on your CRM, it is also made on Campusgroups.
  • When additional data is collected CampusGroups (such as uploaded resumes), is it pushed over to your CRM, enriching your overall user data.

Social Media

CampusGroups enables students to share their experiences to an expanded network by integrating with their favorite social media channels, and our LinkedIn integration allows students to download their resumes from LinkedIn into CampusGroups in just one click.
