LGBTQ Resource Center


The UI Cultural and Resource Centers provide intra- and cross-cultural education, leadership and organizational development opportunities, social justice education and change, a "home away from home" for students, and a safe space for cultural and psychosocial development. The Centers compliment the academic mission of the University by enhancing students' experiences inside and outside of the classroom.

Support the LGBTQ Resource Center


To help students excel by providing a nurturing and affirming space, a “home away from home,” for our LGBTQ students.


LGBTQRC offers a supportive environment where students interact with others and experience diversity while serving their community. In Spring 2005, The Executive Board of the UI Gay, Lesbian, Transgender & Allied Union (GLBTAU) met with University administration to discuss the possibility of securing a Center for the LGBTQ community. The LGBTQRC opened its doors in Fall 2006 as a space to interact with other LGBTQ students and enhance student educational experience at the University of Iowa.


The LGBTQRC is a venue for students, student organizations, and community members. It is equipped with: a kitchen, living and dining rooms, study rooms, HULU, Netflix, Pandora, cable, computer and printers, board games, and game console- (N64). The LGBTQRC has anything you need to host a program, make a meal, study, or simply relax with friends!
