At the Center

 

Library

The LGBTQ Center maintains a resource library with approximately 600 holdings (books, audio, and brochures). Anyone with a PID number can check out these holdings (brochures are available for free and do not have to be returned). Research has indicated that people who are early in the ‘coming out’ process are more likely to utilize and check out books/materials when they are available through a facility that is known to be welcoming and affirming of LGBTQ persons and in which their confidentiality from non-LGBTQ people is protected. Resources are also available on smoking cessation, alcohol use and cessation, relationship violence, healthy relationships, LGBTQ community organizations, welcoming and affirming religious/spiritual organizations, and safer sex practices.

LGBTQ Center Lounge

During usual hours of operation, students, faculty, and staff are welcome to use the Center's main area to study, relax, hang out with friends, or join us for lunch! The seating area has room for 4-8 people around a coffee table, outlets to plug in devices, and access to a number of board games and craft supplies. We also have a refrigerator and microwave, if you'd like to have lunch in the Center!
