Graduate Student Community

For the first time, Georgia Tech Graduate Students have their own, BuzzCard-accessible space in the Library. Located on the sixth floor, the Graduate Student Community (GSC) is available for quiet study whenever the Library is open.

Quiet Study

Designed as a quiet place for individual study, the GSC provides individual study carrels along with comfortable seating. As such, events or large group meetings are not permitted in the GSC.

Breakout Rooms

For those who need to work in small groups, the GSC provides six individual breakout rooms. Breakout rooms are available for graduate students via instant reservation, and include wall monitors that can be used with your own device. The breakout rooms are available for academic or scholarly purposes only.

Graduate Community


The space is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). As such, it contains dual monitor docking stations. Information about downloading drivers to use with the docking stations can be found on the DisplayLink website. In addition, black and white and color printing is available in the GSC – print jobs can be submitted from your personal computer by downloading the OIT Laptop Print Package available on the OIT Software Distribution website.

Contact if a printer or docking station is not working properly.


Graduate students have access to their own kitchen area within the GSC, including counter space, sink, refrigerator, and microwave. The GSC Kitchen is for graduate students only – no guests or hosted events are permitted.



112 medium-sized lockers are available for graduate students within the GSC. These lockers can be checked out until the end of each semester and will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Please use the Locker Request to reserve.
