Single Graduate Student Residence Consultative Council

The Single Graduate Student Residence Consultative Council (SGSRCC) was created to ensure Campus Housing has a formal channel for educating residents and acquiring student input on the graduate housing residence experience. 

It is an opportunity for students living in CLV to share their thoughts, feedback, and concerns on all major issues related to their residence stay, and to provide input on decisions made by Campus Housing that directly affect graduate housing.  

Examples of topics could include (but are not limited to) the Housing budget, adjusted shuttle times, and planned maintenance of the CLV community.  

The SGSRCC provides transparency, and ensures Campus Housing fulfills Residential Tenancies Act exemption requirements. While all feedback from the Council will be taken into consideration by professional staff, outcomes and ultimate decisions will be made by Campus Housing staff members.  

Meeting Protocols can be found here. 


 Membership is comprised of UW students who have signed graduate housing residence contracts (Graduate students (non-family), Optometry students, and 4B Accounting students) and the CLV Graduate Operations Team professional staff.

Single Graduate Door Knocking Campaign

As a member of the CLV graduate community, we want to understand your experience living on-campus. During our graduate housing Door Knocking Campaigns, senior members of the Campus Housing team will come to you. This provides members of the graduate housing community the opportunity to share their feedback, raise questions and voice any concern’s they may have. 

Next date for Door Knocker Campaign: TBD* 

*Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, virtual consultation mechanisms (e.g. live chats, online surveys, etc) are temporarily being used each term to replace in-person door knocking campaigns. We expect and are looking forward to returning to in-person Door Knocking Campaigns in a future term as soon as it is safe and possible to do so!
