LGBTQ Resources-Student Life - Carnegie Mellon University

LGBTQ Resources

The Student Life Office, in conjunction with our student-run LGBTQ organizations, coordinates a number of programs and resources designated to support and raise awareness of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) community on campus.

Programs & Resources

SafeZone is a network of allies (faculty, staff and students) committed to providing a safe and affirming environment for all at Carnegie Mellon, including those in the LGBTQ community. By displaying a SafeZone sign in their work or living space, members of the SafeZone network actively show their support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. For more information about how to join SafeZone, contact Meg Evans via email or phone at (412) 268-2142 or visit the SafeZone website.

Student Life also provides advising support to ALLIES, a student organization which offers programs and resources for people of all sexual and gender identities. ALLIES also serves as the LGBTQ and friends social organization on campus. To learn more, visit their website.
