The Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity connects students to a variety of LGBTQ resources on campus, including information on all gender restrooms, name and gender marker changes, and more. 

If you are looking for someone to talk to but not sure where to start, look for Safe Zone stickers like the one below. Individuals who display these stickers are trained advocates and can provide resources to LGBTQIA+ people and communities. Although the training focuses on gender and sexuality, these individuals are happy to listen or help connect you to other resources. Please never hesitate to ask for help!
