Expanded Grad Student Resource Center & Lounge Opens in Fall '21 in Rhodes West
A Common Space Designed for all Graduate Students
Find us in Rhodes Tower West, home of the Graduate Student Resource Center and Student Lounge. Grad students will find spaces for group work, quiet study rooms, large and small group meetings, and private spaces for phone/video calls or to prepare for a presentation. Take a break in the lounge area and warm a meal in the kitchen - before or between classes as your schedule allows.
In Spring 2018, the Grad Center opened in RW 210 and a new chapter began in the 50-year history of graduate students at Cleveland State University. College of Graduate Studies' Former Dean, Dr. Nigamanth Sridhar, recognized the need for a centralized hub for establishing a common space for interdisciplinary conversation and collaboration and to foster graduate student success on campus with a the new study and lounge space. In Spring 2020, we grew into a larger suite, RW 238, with added amenities.
"The new Graduate Student Center is a much needed area for graduate students to congregate and feel at home at CSU. We are working to take a larger role on campus and enhance graduate students’ time at CSU. In my opinion, the Graduate Student Center is one of the final pieces of the puzzle for CSU!"
