Graduate Student Resource Center

The Graduate Student Resource Center serves as both a physical and online space for graduate students to learn and share information about all aspects of graduate student life at UCSB. The staff, including a team of graduate student peer advisors, connects students with resources across campus to help them succeed academically and professionally. The team also produces the GradPost, a graduate student blog with information about campus news, funding, professional development, events, and more.

You can find the GSRC on the first floor of the Student Resource Building.
