Frequently Asked Questions

students walking on campus

Are there many queer students on campus?
Yes.  Queer and trans students and their allies are all over campus. There is a queer presence in many student clubs & organizations, a queer-themed living/learning program, and a busy calendar of LGBTQA events and programs for all to enjoy.  Contact us to find out more about any of this and check out our resources, programs and events, and social media pages.

Is there a vibrant presence of queer faculty and staff?
Yes.  We maintain a directory of LGBT staff and faculty. 

What about student housing, is there LGBT-only housing options and gender inclusive spaces?
Yes.  UVM's Office of Residential Life works with the LGBTQA Center to offer LGBT community-building or safer housing options for its LGBT students.  Housing options can also be sorted according to whether the program or building offers gender inclusive restrooms.
