Our Campus

UAlbany has been recognized as a model campus for LGBTQ+ programs, support and services.  What makes an LGBT-friendly campus? The question is a very personal one. Each student needs to evaluate their prospective university or college with their own rubric and sense of what makes LGBTQ+ campus life appealing. To see the types of programs regularly offered and to view a current semester calendar, visit the Events section.

The links to the left and the information organized below are just some of the resources the University offers across campus that we think may interest Undergrad, Graduate, Faculty/Staff as well as Parents and Alumni. We are constantly updating this page and adding resources as we become aware of them.

We Love Our Students!

Our main goal is to create a comfortable safe space for all students. The Gender and Sexuality Resource Center is a place where you can gain support and expand your knowledge all while feeling at home on campus.

There are many programs on campus to get students involved in organizations and leadership opportunities. There are many discussions to support students throughout the academic year with not only social success, but academic success as well. 

Here are just a few links to resources that may be of interest for current or prospective students. Explore more of the GSRC site and the University at Albany to see all our campus has to offer!
