Welcome to the website of the University of New Hampshire’s Graduate Student Senate!
The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) is the official voice of UNH's graduate student body. We work hard to advocate for graduate students, representing their interests across UNH and the university system. We also work to engage the state legislature and foster a sense of community and social engagement among graduate students on campus.
All degree-seeking graduate students are members of the GSS and are eligible to participate in all meetings and events. The GSS meets every other Tuesday from 12:30-2:00 pm in the Memorial Union Building (MUB) on the UNH Campus in Durham.
