A New, Expanded Space for the Office of LGBTQ Resources

March 9, 2017

I am pleased to announce the relocation and expansion of the Office of LGBTQ Resources. In August 2017, the office will move to the ground floor of Founders Hall at 135 Prospect Street. This renovated, 2,200 square foot dedicated space, designed by the architecture firm of Moser Pilon Nelson Architects with input from students, will feature a drop-in lounge; a full kitchen; a multipurpose room for dinners, screenings and discussions; and all-gender restrooms. In addition, there will be shared access to 1,400 square feet of meeting space on the lower level and shared use of two beautiful exterior courtyards and terraces. The seminar rooms and lecture halls of the adjacent Watson Center will provide space for special events and for programs during Pride at Yale and Trans/gender Awareness weeks. The location at the corner of Prospect and Sachem is easily accessible by all central campus shuttle lines. I hope you will take the opportunity to visit and to participate in the many excellent programs offered for students, faculty, and staff. 

The Office of LGBTQ Resources provides programming, education, and outreach to the university community on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.
