Queer, transgender, non-binary, and non-cisgendered students at Westminster face many of the same challenges as other students: getting along with roommates, creating a new group of friends, and getting to class on time. In addition, LGBTQ+ students face many unique challenges. Westminster has a commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community on campus, and many resources are available to aid that mission.

Queer Compass and the Student Engagement and Belonging are available to talk about the resources and services available on campus for queer, transgender, non-binary, and non-cisgendered students and can also offer guidance to help you to get to other support resources you may need. For more info, email the center at diversity@westminsteru.edu.
