Temporarily Closed

After careful consideration, the GSA is sad to announce that the Last Defence Lounge (LDL) will not reopen until further notice due to the impacts of COVID-19. As a result, services generally provided by the LDL will not be available during this time. Cancelled LDL services include room bookings, food services, in-person GSA events, and thesis defense sparkling wine. We apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause. Alternative resources and services for #UCalgaryGradStudents may be found on campus or online by visiting the links below.


Please check out our online events, updates on advocacy, and more on our website:
