LGBTQA Community at Bloomsburg University

LGBTQA Community at Bloomsburg University

Through Student Affairs and the Office of the Dean of Students, the LGBTQA Resource Center is committed to making Bloomsburg University a safe and welcoming space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, and allied students. This is done through education, programming, advocacy and public policy.
The Office for LGBT Interests at Bloomsburg University opened in the spring of 2006 and became LGBTQA Resource Center in fall of 2013 is now headed by the Coordinator of LGBTQA Student Services.

New student housing option

BU will offer gender-neutral housing on Northumberland Hall’s second floor beginning in fall 2015. This new housing option will enable transgender students to request a roommate of their choice regardless of gender identification, with restrooms designated either women-only or gender-neutral.

Housing preference questions have been updated so that students are able to choose this option through the existing room selection process. Students who do not actively select this option will be consulted before being placed in this wing. Gender neutral housing offers an inclusive housing option for students who still desire a traditional residence hall experience. Residence Life staff implemented this option understanding the needs of gender identity in our campus community. Ongoing support is provided through both Residence Life and the LGBTQA Resource Center.
