Queer on Campus?

The University of Windsor is committed to creating a safe and inclusive experience for all of our campus community members - students, staff, and faculty. Check out the resource below if you or someone you know is looking for support or involvement in 2SLGBTQIA+ activities.

UWSA Campus Pride Centre

The Campus Pride Centre is a student-run and student-focused organization supported by the University of Windsor Student Association (UWSA). They offer drop-in hours in their community space, and partner with other groups such as UWinPride, Queer in STEM, and others to offer social events. 

The Campus Pride Centre is closed from May through August, but you can keep an eye on their Instagram for updates. 

Queer in STEM

As a group of 2SLGBTQIA+ graduate and undergraduate students, Queer in STEM provides an inclusive space for networking, connection, and fun! 

Check them out on Twitter and Instagram!

Womxn's Centre

The Womxn's Centre is located on the 2nd floor of the CAW Centre, near the overlook to the Commons area. They provide a pro-choice, feminist space for education, community, and resources. 

Prevent, Resist, Support

Support for Unwanted Sexual Experiences

If you are in need of support but aren't sure what you should do or where you should go for help, you can start by speaking to Dusty or Anne at the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention, Resistance, and Support (PRS). Dusty and Anne are here to listen. What happens next is up to you. Please know that you can seek their support without any obligation to formally report. You can also seek support regardless of when the assault occurred -- whether it was recently or a long time ago, you still deserve to be listened to.

PRS can also help connect you with counselling and medical services, as well as other campus and community resources. They can provide information about your reporting options, both to the University and the police. If you choose to file a formal complaint, they can support you in that process. They can help arrange academic and workplace accommodations, and help you with safety planning.

Contact Dusty and Anne at svsupport@uwindsor.ca or reach out via our confidential contact form.
