The GSA participates in a variety of committees that may be relevant to you. Visit the About page to see the list of committees and who represents you on them.

Membership changes take effect in October.

About the Student Choice Initiative

As a result of the Student Choice Initiative mandating optional student government fees, only students who opt-in to the GSA will hold membership and have the opportunity to access services.

Please note, GSA Counselling Services, the Guelph Transit Bus Pass and the Student Health and Dental Plans (must opt in to the Plans), are excepted from the Student Choice Initiative mandate, meaning registered graduate students who are not GSA members can still use these services.

GSA Services


A monthly Newsletter is circulated to GSA General Directors and Grad Secretaries of Vacant Departments (on the GSA Board).

The deadline for submissions is the first day of each month. Please e-mail the account if you would like to promote departmental news, events, volunteer opportunities, etc.
