At Okanagan College, two student-led organizations offer additional support for students.

Students with their home campus in Penticton, Kelowna or Salmon Arm are members of the Okanagan College Students' Union.

Students with Vernon as their home campus are members of the Vernon Students’ Association Okanagan College.

These two student-elected bodies are often involved in organizing campus social and recreational events.

The OCSU and VSOAC also provide a wide variety of supports and services to students including, but not limited to:
-    Discounted copy and fax services
-    Health & Dental Plans
-    Clubs and Associations
-    Housing registry
