The LGBTQ Resource Library is located at the LGBTQ Center in SASB South, Suite 3308.
Books and videos are available to students, staff, and faculty with a UNC PID number for a two week check out period. Non-UNC affiliates may use resources in-house only. Patrons can search the library holdings via the UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries Catalog, but must visit the LGBTQ Center in order to check out materials. Materials may be renewed depending on availability and requests for use by other patrons.

Includes social, business, and support groups and organizations, events, and affirming faith-based communities and businesses.
Being LGBTQ does not cause substance abuse. Rather, specific differences — mostly consequences of prejudice — weaken LGBTQ adolescents’ support systems and increase the pressure for them to use drugs and alcohol. Understanding these differences is crucial for helping LGBTQ teens grow up healthy, happy and substance-free.
Gender neutral restrooms are a benefit to many people but especially to people who are transgender, gender non-binary, and gender non-conforming. There are over 300 gender neutral bathrooms on our campus.
In Fall 2004, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill began offering a minor in Sexuality Studies. This minor is designed for students interested in exploring the study of sexual/gender identities—such as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and heterosexual—as well as the full range of human sexual behaviors and identities in diverse cultures and historical periods.
This guide is designed to help transgender and nonbinary students at Carolina navigate services they may or may not want to utilize during or after social, medical and/or legal transition. Policies and services are presented to assist with identifying preferred name, changing one’s name in UNC records, changing ones gender marker in UNC records, or how to change legal name and/or gender marker on government issued documents.
