Stanford's award-winning center provides a warm and welcoming space for the extremely diverse population of students celebrating, questioning, investigating and struggling with sexual orientation and/or gender identity. The LGBT Community Resources Center is a great place to relax, study, check email, browse books and magazines, watch films or converse with queer and allied students. Stanford topped the list of Princeton Review's LGBT-friendly campuses and won the President's Award for Excellence through Diversity.

In addition to mentoring student staff and directing the Center's programmatic functions, the LGBT-CRC professional staff partner with appropriate university offices to provide coaching, individual case management and referrals to students in need. Objectives are to provide direct support to students struggling with the range of academic, familial, psychological, interpersonal, spiritual and ethical challenges surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity; and to ensure that university policies and practices help them to develop intellectually, emotionally and professionally.

The space is open to all Stanford students and offers 
  • a computer cluster
  • complimentary printing
  • a library
  • magazines, academic journals and arts publications
  • a study, meeting and events space with a media center
  • dry erase boards for creative brainstorming
