Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) sponsors a variety of social and cultural activities for graduate students and represents their interests to the university through its legislative body. The GSA provides free legal advice to students and it sponsors academic programs, films, mixers, daytrips, and community-action programs.

Every graduate student, whether full-time or part-time, in any of the Rutgers University-New Brunswick graduate and professional schools automatically becomes a member of the GSA. A president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary are elected at large. The GSA's main legislative body is its council, which meets once a month. Every graduate program and department may elect one representative for every 40 students enrolled; schools not organized into departments elect their representatives at large, one for every 40 students enrolled. (Departments with less than 40 students also are allowed one elected representative.) Students interested in being a department representative should check with their departmental organization or the GSA office. The GSA offices are located in the Graduate Student Lounge (GSL)* in the College Avenue Student Center in New Brunswick and may be contacted at 848-932-7995 or

*The GSL is primarily for the use of graduate students and for the functions sponsored by and for graduate students. It provides a comfortable atmosphere for socializing, lounging, and studying.
