How do I create a group with Campus Connect in GroupMe?

When you create a group in your college or university community, it will be discoverable to anyone with an email address from your college/university.

Note: Campus Connect is currently only available for colleges, trade schools, and universities. GroupMe Campus Connect is independent of (and is not managed by) your college or university.

  1. Select the Open Navigation  Open Navigation button menu, then select Campus Connect.

    Note: If you don't have the Open Navigation  Open Navigation button menu on your iPad, tap Chat at the top of the screen.

  2. Select Create a group.

  3. You can Set an Avatar (profile picture) for the group from your device’s images.

  4. Type in your Group name, which is required.

  5. Add an optional Group topic, then select Next (or the checkmark) on mobile or Create Group on web.

  6. To add people to your new group, you can:

    • Search for contacts using their name, phone number, or email.

    • Choose from your existing Contacts.

    • Choose Groups to use an existing group’s member list to add to yours.

    • Choose from the list of Recent or Suggested contacts.

  7. On your mobile device, tap Done (or the checkmark) to create your group. You can also Set up your Request to join options.

  8. Select Next (or the checkmark) to finish creating your group. 

Tip: If you choose to create a new group by cloning an existing one, the cloned group will be created as a normal GroupMe chat and will not show up in community search.
