The Graduate Student Lounge is home base for UChicago’s graduate student population. Located on the fourth floor of the UChicago Bookstore, The Lounge is a space where graduate students from across programs can drop in for individual study, small-group collaboration, and socializing.

In addition to two reservable meeting spaces, we feature a quiet space, kitchenette with daily refrigeration service, free daily locker rentals, coffee, tea, and light snacks.  We also house the offices of the Diversity Advisory Board and the Graduate Student Council.

The Graduate Student Lounge is managed by Kevin Bryant and supported by a team of Graduate Service Specialists, who serve as resources for campus information and services.
