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.

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

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

  2. Select Create a group.

  3. You can Set an Avatar 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 on mobile or Create Group on web.

    Note: On web, select Advanced to add the group topic.

  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. Set up your Request to join options, if desired.

  8. Your new group is ready to start chatting.

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.
