LGBTQ+ Resource Center

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is one of the nation’s top campuses for LGBTQ+ students and is currently rated 4.5 stars by Campus Pride as on LGBTQ+ friendly University. We have earned one of the highest score attainable in terms of creating a safe and welcoming campus for LGBTQ+ students and their allies.

Part of why UWM scores so high every year is because our dedication to the students’ experience goes far beyond just the LGBTQ+ Resource Center. We actively engage with other departments on campus to create an affirming and welcoming educational environment for all students. Our campus has also been home to some groundbreaking strides for the LGBTQ+ community.

Learn more about our history and milestones. We continue our pioneering presence today and invite you to explore some of the reasons why we are such a dynamic campus for those who identify as LGBTQ+ or allies. Stop by or join the email list to receive updates about events & programs.

COVID-19 Response

Here are our plans for operation for the near future:

We will be closed during the extended Spring Break from 3/14 to 3/29. However, we will have staff working during the duration of break. If there is any way we can support you or answer any questions, you can contact us through Facebook or email peerout@uwm.edu. We can also meet in person by appointment.

Starting on March 30th, we will be open from 10am to 3pm on weekdays. We will return to regular hours whenever in-person classes resume (hopefully April 10th 🤞).

We are hopeful that Lavender Graduation can continue on as planned, but even if we’re not able to return to normalcy by May, we will find an alternate way to celebrate our graduates. So keep registering and nominating graduates for awards at uwm.edu/lavgrad.

Lastly, we know social distancing will be challenging and that can be even more true for LGBTQ+ students. So in an attempt to recreate a little bit of our center, we set up a discord server for everyone to stay connected. You can join at bit.ly/LGBTQRCdiscord.
