COVID-19 Update: Grad Student Lounge is temporarily closed. GSRC services and resources are available online.
NOW OPEN! Expanded Grad Student Resource Center & Lounge in Rhodes West
A Common Space Designed for all Graduate Students
OPEN Monday through Thursday from Noon-6PM
Rhodes West, Suite #238
Rhodes Tower West, #238 is home to the Graduate Student Resource Center and Student Lounge. Graduate students will find spaces for group work, quiet study rooms, large and small group meeting space, and private spaces for study, group work, video chats, and a boardroom for larger meetings. The open spaces are ideal for presentations, collaboration, group work, music, TV and games. Take a break in the lounge or warm a meal in the kitchen - before or between classes as your schedule allows.
In Spring 2018, the Graduate Student 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, collaboration and to foster graduate student success on campus.
In Spring 2020, the GSRC grew into a larger suite in RW 238 and added many new amenities. When most courses were transitioned to remote learning in April 2020 the opening was delayed to October 2021. "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!"
