The Fifth: GSA Rooftop Patio and Lounge


The Fifth: GSA Rooftop Patio and Lounge (operating as the Grad Student Lounge) is a restaurant and bar owned and operated by the GSA. While this space provides a meeting place for graduate students, it is also open to other university groups and departments. Everyone is welcome at the Grad Student Lounge!

Don’t forget about your Defense Mug: If you have successfully defended your thesis, come and visit us, give us your autograph and we’ll give you a Grad beer glass to keep!  We’ll even fill it with a beer of your choice from whatever is on tap.
