Support for LGBTIQ students and staff

Here you can find support for LGBTIQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer and Questioning) students and staff. UNSW recognises you can often experience social exclusion for a range of reasons that can have a profoundly negative impact on health, study and work achievements.


Contact an Ally for support

If you would like to contact any of our LGBTIQ Allies, they will be happy to hear from you and provide confidential referral advice.

What is the Ally Program?

The Ally training program aims to make UNSW a great place for everybody by reducing barriers of fear and ignorance that lead to prejudice and discrimination.

What is the role of an Ally?

The ALLY@UNSW network are trained staff and students that aims to ensure that UNSW is a safe and welcoming place for all students and staff who identify as LGBTIQ.
