About Us

LGBT Group PhotoThe Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) Center at the University of Virginia seeks to foster the development of LGBTQ students, faculty, staff, alumni, and allies. Founded under the Office of the Dean of Students in 2001, with generous financial support from the Serpentine Society, the LGBTQ Center works to raise awareness and inclusion of sexual and gender diversities through programs, outreach, and services that support the advancement of  the LGBTQ community.

Located in the center of Grounds, in Newcomb Hall’s Lower Level (just past Cavalier Daily), the LGBTQ Center is both a welcoming physical space and a programming center for the university. Whether you’re questioning, coming out, queer, or an ally, the Center has something for you.

Open Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

University’s Diversity Statement

The University of Virginia’s Commitment to Diversity
Diversity stands with ethics, integrity, and academic excellence, as a cornerstone of University culture. The University promotes an inclusive and welcoming environment that embraces the full spectrum of human attributes, perspectives, and disciplines. When people of different backgrounds come together, they exchange ideas, question assumptions (including their own), and broaden the horizons for us all. A University of Virginia community rich in diversity affords every member equal respect – and provides a forum for understanding our differences as well as our commonalities.
