The Purdue Graduate Student Center is your place to de-stress & decompress!


Due to COVID restrictions we are re-purposing the spaces at the Center to be multi-purpose to serve the needs of Grad Students.  Please feel free to use the Center to your advantage! 

Room 105 A&B: The large conference room will be used as a study area for individuals or groups.  The entire room can accommodate a group of 24-28 people.  The room is equipped with a room divider which will allow for groups of five to ten to study together. You will be allowed to re-arrange the tables and chairs, as long as, the room is returned to it’s original set up and all areas are wiped down with the provided sanitizer.  If you wish to use this area for any size group, feel free to reserve it, just complete the online reservation request form at the link below.

The Lounge: The room is equipped with a high-quality printer, has a large screen TV to watch your favorite shows, catch up on the news or play X-Box (which can be checked out from the front desk).  We also have a piano keyboard with headsets.  This is your space is yours to relax and study.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with a vending machine, microwave and large refrigerator/freezer – to store your lunch/dinner.  We require every person to please put their name and the date on your items being stored. Also please read the rules posted. 

BRAND NEW! Remodeled Basement Area: A secluded area with WIFI.  Currently the furniture stationed in this area is temporary. We hope to get brand new furnishings soon! 

Room 108: If you are a Grad Student needing to record virtual instructional videos and need a place that is quiet and professional. We are dedicating this room for this purpose.  The room is equipped with a white board and has computer with portable camera.  Time slots will be 60-90 minutes.
