LGBTIQ Support at UNSW

If you have been discriminated against or harassed by a member of staff or another student because of your race, religion, sexuality, age, disability or gender it is important you follow the process as outlined in the Student Complaint Procedure.

SRC Queer Officers

The Student Representative Council has elected Queer Officers, who advocate for the rights of LGBTIQ students on campus and organise events. These officers are elected by students in semester two, and look after the Queer Collective.

Contact your Queer Officers

Queer Collective

Arc Queer Collective support and represent all students on campus who are queer - that is, people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, genderqueer, asexual or anywhere within the Queer spectrum. Look out for Queer Collective meetings, parties and events and more!

Get in contact if you would like to be added to the secret Facebook Group (only other members will be able to see you are in the group and it won't be searchable). 

If you have any questions, hot ideas, or anything else shoot us an email.
