Gender and Sexuality Center
As a part of USF’s Cultural Centers, the Gender & Sexuality Center is both a physical lounge space for students, and a hub for student-run programs.
Our programs explore women and gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, and healthy relationships topics on campus through creative and engaging dialogues and workshops. Our lounge is open to all students, and staffed by interns Monday-Thursday from 11am-6:00pm and Fridays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. We encourage you to stop by to learn more about events and hang out with other students who are interested in similar topics.
About the Center
The Gender and Sexuality Center is located on the fourth floor of the University Center building, and is located to the left and down the hall after exiting from the stairwell or elevator. We are situated next to the Intercultural Center who we program and collaborate with regularly.
Our lounge space has plentiful seating for USF students to hang out with friends and cultural center interns, a desk for our graduate coordinator, and a TV compatible with airplay streaming or HDMI hookups. We also have an expansive library containing various books and movies to enjoy while you visit the center. You can enjoy hot coffee or tea, snacks, coloring pages, and more available to enjoy throughout the day. You will also find various pamphlets which cover sexual health and healthcare, local resources and aid, and more, available to take with you.
Within our lounge is the Gender Affirming Clothing Closet which is available for USF students to access free gender affirming clothing confidently away from potential judgement, discrimination, or high pricing found in typical shopping centers.
Gender and Sexuality Based Events
Our programs explore gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, healthy relationships, and sexual violence prevention topics on campus through creative and engaging dialogues and workshops.
Community Meet-Ups & Drop In Spaces
