The General Union of Palestinian Students (Arabic: إتحاد الطلاب الفلسطينين العام‎) (GUPS) is an organization run by Palestinian students since the early 1920s. It is generally considered one of the first Palestinian institutions started. It was officially launched in Cairo in 1959.[1]

Several Palestinian politicians, writers, journalists and militants have been members or leaders of the GUPS. They include Yasser Arafat, Hanan Ashrawi, Faisal Husseini, Walid Khalidi and many others.

The organization is a member of the World Federation of Democratic Youth.
