About Us


The Office of Graduate Student Affairs supports and encourages life on campus for graduate students outside of the classroom and serves as a liaison between graduate students and university administration. We work to coordinate events and programming among the three graduate schools on campus. We advise and assist the Graduate Student Association (GSA) and the Graduate Student Senate, offer programming throughout the year and run Graduate Student Orientation in the fall.

We have two locations.

The Graduate Student Center is located in Kutz Hall on the main floor.  The Center offers a space to hang out and socialize, to study and work, free coffee and tea, a small kitchen, a place to meet friends, attend programs or have lunch.  We are a great place to find resources and information to meet all your needs.  We offer discounted tickets to local movie houses and cultural events in Boston.  We have some day lockers, a fax machine, a plasma screen TV and some computers for checking email or working on a project - all dedicated exclusively to grad students.

The Gerstenzang Graduate Student Study Lounge is located in the Gerstenzang Science Library on the main floor.  It is a quiet place to work and study and also has free coffee and tea and the use of a small kitchen.  The entire area is wireless, but there are five desktop computers there for graduate student use.
