Coming Soon

Each term the GSA welcomes graduate students by offering orientation programming where new and returning students can get the chance to meet members of their community and learn about the many services offered for their benefit and enjoyment.

For Winter 2023, we are offering an in-person event and virtual programming.

Winter Welcome Open House

New and returning graduate students are invited to Triffo Hall on Thursday, January 5, 2023 from 10AM-12PM.

Join us for coffee and pastries to talk to your elected leaders, learn about the GSA, and meet other graduate students. 

Click here to access our Events page.


New and returning graduate students are also invited to enroll in the Graduate Student Orientation eClass for more in-depth information about the GSA and other important University of Alberta services. 

Complete the course by January 31, 2023 to have your CCID automatically entered into a draw for an iPad!
