Welcome to the LGBTQ Campus Resource Center!

The UCLA LGBTQ Campus Resource Center has proudly been serving the UCLA community for 20 years. We provide a comprehensive range of education and advocacy services supporting intersectional identity development as well as fostering unity, wellness, and an open, safe, and inclusive environment for UCLA’s LGBTQ community. The LGBTQ CRC affirms folks of all sexual and gender identities and serves the entire UCLA community – undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, and alumni. We welcome you to engage with us by stopping by the Center, attending our programming, utilizing our services, or participating in an allyship training.


Spring Update in light of COVID-19

Dear Bruin Community,

We welcome you to spring quarter and hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.

We know these are challenging times. Some are struggling to support themselves and loved ones directly impacted by the coronavirus. Many are facing challenges as we adapt to a new online learning environment. Some are facing difficulty in adjusting to life within a home that is not affirming of their sexual and romantic orientations and/or gender identities. Many are experiencing heightened racism and xenophobia, intolerable and violent reactions which are the antithesis of what we stand for as an institution and as a Center.

We invite you to be in community with us at this time—one full of compassion, generosity, and appreciation of one another. We want you to know we are here for you: to advocate and support, to hold space and care. We want you to know you are not alone. While our physical space is closed during the shelter in residence order, our professional and student staff are still working diligently to transition our programs and services online.

We invite you to join us in our weekly spaces, now being offered virtually. For information about those programs, please find the event listings below or follow us on social media @UCLALGBTQ.

Our Center staff are also available for direct support. Contact us if you want to set up a time either over the phone or via Zoom:

Andy, Director: acofino@lgbt.ucla.edu
Jose, Operations Coordinator: jgarcia@lgbt.ucla.edu
Liz, Program Coordinator: elopez@lgbt.ucla.edu
Megan, Assistant Director: mvandertoorn@lgbt.ucla.edu

Our regular hours remain the same as if the Center were open: Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.

Additionally, the UC, UCLA, and our University partners are providing new resources to navigate campus during this time of crisis. We’ve included some helpful links to those resources below. Please do not hesitate to reach out and please, take good care of yourselves and each other.
