GSS Referendum: September 2018

The Graduate Student Society is holding a special Referendum to make essential changes to our Bylaws and Constitution, including updates to remain a registered Society within the province of British Columbia. You have the power to review these changes and vote in this referendum, as a graduate student at UBC.



Voting takes place between 10-23 September. You can find more information about the reasons for the referendum and the exact changes,

French Classes

Parlez-vous francais? Non? Want to?

 Well the GSS has you covered. We're offering classes on and off campus at two different levels, so there's a class for you whether you're an absolute beginner or if you're looking advance to the next level. Our classes offer a chance to lean in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.




Yoga with the GSS

Namaste! Time to get bendy and relieve stress.


Open to yogis of all levels! Whether you are just getting acquainted with downward dog or you have that toe stand nailed, everyone will be challenged at the appropriate level.







Fall Zumba Classes

Ditch the Workout, Join the Party! Shake away the stress from your graduate studies through dance and aerobic movements choreographed to energetic music.


Open to all levels! If you’re just learning your way around two left feet or are spinning like a top, everyone will be challenged at the appropriate level.

Become a UBC Climate Mentor!

The UBC Climate Hub is connecting undergraduate and graduate students from across faculties in climate mentorship pods grouped around specific climate themes. These pods will also be connected to professors, staff, and the broader community who can provide additional mentorship. By creating these hopeful climate incubators, we will expand students’ social and professional networks and create a vibrant campus climate community. We’re looking for graduate students to be climate mentors in the 2018-2019 school year! Applications close on September 10, 2018. Apply here
