Welcome to the University of Victoria (UVic) Graduate Students’ Society (GSS). We are a democratic, non-profit society dedicated to serving the interests of graduate students here at UVic. We extend a warm invitation to prospective graduate students and current UVic graduate students, community members, and others to browse our website for information on our services, events, advocacy, and governance.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, the GSS office staff are working from home. That being said, the GSS is still continuing our normal operations (although we are finding ways to move some of them into the digital space). 

f you need assistance or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you are not sure who to contact, check out the contact page or email as, even if we cannot answer your question, we can direct you to the appropriate person.

We will (at time of writing) be maintaining our usual office hours for the work day (Monday – Thursday 10am -4 pm) so emails sent outside those times may not receive an immediate reply.
