PV Visitor Parking Update

I'd like to thank Gerald Parham, director of Palo Verde for many years, for taking action to address the dearth of visitor parking in the Palo Verde community. Gerald stepped down on November 1 and has decided to move on to another leadership role in UCI Athletics. Here's what Gerald put in place for us: Flex Visitor Parking.

ACC Visitor Parking Hours Increased

AGS would like to thank American Campus Communities for increasing the visitor hours in graduate housing at Vista Del Campo, Vista Del Campo Norte, and Puerta Del Sol from 150 hours to 250 hours for the Fall Quarter. This change comes after a single amicable meeting with the Associated Graduate Students. ACc listened patiently to our concerns and has agreed to raise these hours on a trial basis. THANK YOU for listening to and responding to the needs and concerns of graduate students at UC Irvine.

AGS Events

AGS Calendar

On Campus

We access the administrators; your voices get heard. We advocate for you on issues of housingparking, campus budgeting, and the various student services services on campus.

Social Events

We want to bring you out of your labs, offices, and libraries! In addition to hosting an ever-increasing variety of fabulous events, we fund graduate-student-initiated events and projects!


Currently, we draw some independent income as the primary stakeholder in UCI’s Anthill Pub & Grill, a landmark cultural institution at UCI. We are also open to your on-campus business ideas!

Off Campus

We are deeply involved with lobbying state and national legislatures. Though we advocate on other issues, we are primarily fighting the state of California’s divestment from public higher education.

AGS Symposium

The 2016 AGS Graduate Research Symposium will take place on Friday, April 22. UCI students will showcase outstanding graduate and professional research in non-technical talks and compete for cash prizes. Check out the symposium website for more information, and stay tuned for updates on applications!

Travel Grants

In 2013, AGS raised $70,000 of new funding to send graduate students to academic conferences. If you are a graduate student at UCI, you are eligible. Applications are now open. Check out the travel grant website for more details!
