Welcome to the Cornell Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center.  Here you will find a wide variety of resources, information about the LGBT community at Cornell, and ways to get involved as students, staff, faculty, or alumni.  The LGBT Resource Center was founded in 1994 to be the central hub of LGBTQ life at Cornell. 

Located in 626 Thurston Avenue, the LGBT Resource Center is here for you regardless of your sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression. We strive to be an affirming and welcoming space on campus that works to incorporate principles of social justice into our programs and services. We hope that by reviewing our resources, you can be a resource to a friend and to your community. Understanding these issues and how to provide appropriate support to the LGBTQQIA community is valuable to everyone.

The LGBT Resource Center is staffed Monday through Friday.  Our lounge is open for you to enjoy during regular building hours of the Intercultural Center. Please stop by and say hello or send us an email at lgbtrc@cornell.edu.  We look forward to meeting you soon!

Cornell University is a member of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.
