Graduate Student Resources

Our primary purpose is to connect students with the vast amount of support available on and off campus to ensure their continued success. Consider us your resource for all UW has to offer.



Graduate school is a time of intense academic rigor and personal growth. With the added pressure of research, deadlines, and coursework, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and isolated. However, seeking out support can make a significant difference in your overall experience.


One of the most important sources of support is your fellow graduate students. Forming study groups, attending social events, and sharing your struggles and successes with others in your program can help you feel less alone and more connected to your academic community.


Seeking out mentorship from faculty members can be invaluable. They can offer guidance on navigating the academic landscape and provide valuable insight into your field of study.


Taking care of your mental and physical health is also crucial during this time. Seeking out counseling or therapy services offered by your university can help you manage stress and anxiety. Engaging in regular exercise and maintaining a healthy diet can also help you feel more grounded and focused.


Graduate school is a challenging and rewarding experience. Accessing resources can make all the difference.
