LGBTQ+ Students


The mission of the UCF Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Questioning/Queer (LGBTQ+) Services is to connect our diverse student population to opportunities, resources, and each other to achieve the vision of a stronger, healthier, and more equitable world for LGBTQ+ people and its allies. LGBTQ+ strives to support the community by: Fostering greater opportunities for students to succeed at UCF; Organizing programs and experiences geared toward educating the UCF community; Creating a forum where LGBTQ+ history and culture is acknowledged and celebrated; Creating a space where resources can be created and explored in the future.

 

LGBTQ+ Services offers the Alliance Mentoring Program; LGBTQ+ Workshops and celebratory events.

 

Resources include:

The Q Guide – The Q Guide is a comprehensive guide to the LGBTQ+ resources available to students and allies of the Orlando UCF campus.

The T Guide – The T Guide connects transgender UCF students to the resources and individuals that are available to support transgender identity and transition.

Gender Neutral Restrooms – LGBTQ+ Services has identified numerous gender neutral restrooms for students who need a safe space to change and utilize a restroom without having to be restricted based on gender. Above is a map of the gender neutral restroom map of the UCF campus.
