The GSA Lounge is open to all graduate students and campus-registered student groups or organizations that directly work with or benefit the graduate student body. It’s a great space to work, relax, or visit with fellow graduate students! Amenities include a balcony, a pool table, couches, tables, and chairs. Free coffee is provided for graduate students every weekday during the academic year.
