LGBTQ2IA+ Students

In Student Experience, it’s important to us that our program, services, and spaces are safe(r) for everybody. No matter the colour of your skin, what you believe in, where you come from, how you got here, who you love, or how you choose to identify yourself, we welcome you. In Student Experience, we like to use the term LGBTQ2IA+, which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Two-Spirit, Intersex, Asexual, and other identities that fall outside of cisgender and heterosexual paradigms.

Experiences in the Pandemic Survey

In December 2020, the LGBTQ2IA+ Engagement Peer Helper Team launched an anonymous survey to record student experiences in the pandemic. The goal of the project was to understand students’ experiences and promote solidarity among the community. Submissions in the report are organized into general themes that were brought up by students in their personal accounts of their experiences during the pandemic.

Gender-Neutral Bathrooms

The University of Guelph strives to be an inclusive environment for our community members. To this end, the University is participating in ongoing work to enhance the inventory of gender-neutral bathrooms that are available on campus. Please see the attachment below for the current listing of gender-neutral bathrooms. This list will continue to be updated as signage becomes consistent across campus and new facilities are added.
