GSA Services

The GSA is well known for offering printing services to students to supplement the lack of resources offered by academic departments to graduate students. In addition to this small service we also offer many other services and programs to graduate students.

Office Address: The GSA has three offices:

  • Uptown Campus, Campus Center B-92
  • Downtown Campus, Draper 101
  • East Campus, GEC 156
Each office provides printing and copying as well as a Kuerig (just remember to bring your own Kcups or Coffee).

Announcements: Graduate students can receive updated announcements on jobs, listings, and call for papers through the GSA Listerv. Also deadlines and new Events are announced through the GSAListserv and are sent to you via email weekly. We also have a Guerilla Listserv that is sent out less often but is about how you can get directly involved in our advocacy work. Details about the Listservs are here.

Copying/Printing: Every graduate student who pays the GSA fee on their student account can print/copies 350 pages every 2 weeks. You must sign up with an Office Manager in the Uptown Office or e-mail (gsa@albany.edu) your name, the last five digits of your SUNY ID card number, expected graduation date and what campus you want to register at – Uptown, Downtown, or East. No copying of books will be allowed.

Listserv: The GSA uses an email listserv as the main method for communicating with graduate students which the weekly email announcements digest. To subscribe, please send a blank email to GSA-subscribe-request@listserv.albany.edu. Any message to be posted on the weekly listserv announcement must be sent to gsa@albany.edu with the subject line "FOR LISTSERV".

Lounge: The GSA Uptown Office has a lounge with a microwave, refrigerator, spring water, a Kuerig available for your use! If you would like to reserve the conference table for a meeting, please e-mail gsa@albany.edu

Orientation: Our Programming Chair coordinates an orientation program for new and returning students in the Fall and Spring. This is an opportunity for students to gain valuable information about the organization and various services on campus.

RGSO Events: All events held by graduate student groups are open to all graduate students free of charge. You can learn about these events by signing up for our listserv.

Professional Development


The GSA provides professional development support to students primarily by offering funds to Recognized Graduate Student Organizations to hold events such as panel discussions, guest speakers and research conferences. Some RGSOs also provide social and cultural activities to build the University community.

We also support student’s professional development directly through our grants program. Student may apply for both professional development or research grants to support their careers.

GSA is also in a position to serve graduate student’s professional lives through continued growth of the GSA network both on campus and off. Our partnerships with campus entities such as Career Services, the Office of Environmental Sustainability, Graduate Student Employees Union, and the Institute for Teaching, Learning and Academic Leadership, Library Services, among many others. These partners contribute to our newsletter, co-sponsor events, and provide important guidance for graduate students to succeed.
