Frequently Asked Questions

Full-time McMaster undergraduates who do not wish to support OPIRG can receive a full refund by coming to the OPIRG office with their student ID within three weeks of the September Drop and Add period in September.

We encourage you to learn more about what we do before you decide to opt-out.

Members can sign material out from our resource library, attend workshops for free, vote at our Annual General Meeting, and are eligible to run for the OPIRG McMaster Board of Directors.

Full-time McMaster undergraduates are automatically members since they pay a refundable levy of $7.93 from their student fees. Anyone who is not full time at McMaster is welcome to join OPIRG as a Community Member for a sliding scale $10-$20 fee.

Of course! Start by visiting our Equipment Lending page, where you’ll see how to book the button maker and you’ll find templates for your button art. Each button costs 15 cents. We also have other equipment that is available to borrow.
