GSS Lounge at Burnaby Campus

Free Meeting & Social Space
Need a meeting room? Have a social event you’d like to host in the GSS Lounge? Grad students can book either of our rooms for Caucus events free of charge!

The GSS Boardroom fits up to 16 people. The boardroom has a projection screen and a series of whiteboards.


GSS Lounge


The GSS Lounge capacity is about 35 people seated, 70 people standing. It has couches, chairs, small tables and a great view.  The Lounge also has a projection screen. (Note: The GSS is not a licensed venue, meaning a Special Occasion License is required to host events with alcohol in that space).

See the Room Booking Guidelines  for more information.  Reserve your room online using the Room Booking Form.

Planning to Host an On-Campus Event with Alcohol?

A Graduate Caucus event involving alcohol that is held on any of SFU’s campuses requires a special event liquor license (Special Occasion License), if not held in a licensed venue. (Note: The GSS Lounge is not a licensed venue.) Information for hosting events involving alcohol is located in the GSS Room Booking Guidelines.

Apply here for an Event Insurance Certificate from the GSS. Please allow a minimum of 10 business days for processing prior to your event. We cannot rush insurance certificate requests as they are provided directly by our insurance broker.
