The Graduate Students' Union is an independent body which represents postgraduate students in Trinity College Dublin. All postgraduate students of the College, including postgraduate research students and those on higher degree and higher diploma courses, automatically become members of the Union upon registering with the College. The GSU has two full-time sabbatical officers who represent postgraduates on every level of College, from class rep issues to structures and policy at Board. The GSU also provides advice on academic and welfare issues faced by postgrads, and offers three main facilities: dedicated postgrad study space in the 1937 Reading Room, the GSU Common Room on the first floor of House 7, (open daily from 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday) and the GSU office in Room 28, House 6. Keys can be purchased at the Students' Union Office on the ground floor. Although the GSU works in partnership with the Students' Union, the GSU is the only postgraduate representative organisation recognised by College.
