The Graduate Architecture, Landscape, and Design Student Union (GALDSU), also known as the Graduate Union, is a democratically-elected course union representing, individually and collectively, all students in the four graduate programmes at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. Our purpose is to ensure the protection of graduate students’ rights and advocate for their needs.

We represent students the following programs: Doctor of Philosophy in Architecture, Landscape, and Design, Master of Architecture, Master of Landscape Architecture, Master of Urban Design, Master of Visual Studies in Curatorial Studies, and Master of Visual Studies in Studio Art.

You can find out more about your student representatives for the year in the Governance section.


As of March 2021, GALDSU has jointly suspended its participation in the Daniels Equity and Diversity Committee with AVSSU and the FGSA. *** Click here to learn more ***
