Grad Student Programs

Are you a grad student? Don’t miss out on all the Residence Life events and activities just for you! It’s a great way to catch up with other grad student friends—and meet new ones.

Grad student programming

Due to COVID-19, our monthly in-person social outings are currently on pause. However, as public health restrictions and guidance continue to shift, we look forward to the return of our in-person programming—to help you connect with fellow grad students and explore the city!

Previous outings have included:

  • Richmond Night Market
  • VanDusen Botanical Garden
  • Vancouver Aquarium

Grad social link

To help grad students connect with other grad students safely this past year, we piloted the Grad Social Link. Thanks to the program’s success, we’ll be launching the Grad Social Link again in September 2021.

Watch your email inbox or check back here closer to the start of classes in September for more info!

Can I register anytime?

Registration will kick-off in fall 2021. If you’re unable to sign up at the start of term, you’ll be welcome to sign up anytime in 2021-22 to get matched up with the next month’s group. Just make sure you sign up by the first day of the month you want to start participating (i.e., sign up by November 1 to be assigned to a November group).

Do I have to sign up each month?

Nope. Just sign up once for the year, and each month we’ll connect you with a new group of fellow grad student residents.

How do I de-register if I am no longer able to participate?

If you sign up, but later on change your mind, just email us at to let us know.
