The NYU LGBTQ+ Center creates a welcoming environment for students, faculty, staff, and alumni to develop their understanding of and engage with LGBTQ+ communities through programs, events, learning and development, support, consultation, and resource sharing.
The LGBTQ+ Center Lounge will be closed for the duration of the fall 2020 semester, given our remote operations and physical space limitations. The LGBTQ+ Center will host drop-in virtual lounge hours (starting September 8, 2020) where students are welcome to join at any time during our business hours to connect with one another or one of our student staff members who will be present in the space to support and answer any questions you might have. Virtual lounge hours will be closed on Fridays from 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. ET for LGBTQ+ Center staff meetings.
