About LGBTQ Life

LGBTQ Life provides support, education, and advocacy around sexual orientation, gender identity, and the intersections of those identities with other identities. We serve LGBTQA and allied students, staff, and faculty across Johns Hopkins University.. In collaboration with our many campus partners, we are working towards making Hopkins a safer and more inclusive place for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Visit Us

Our office (which is temporarily closed) is located in Suite 102 in the Homewood Apartments at 3003 N. Charles Street. (This is the same building as SHWC, CSS, and the Counseling Center.) Our office is accessible using the south entrance (closest to 30th Street). If you’re coming from the north, walk past FedEx, past The LaB, past the residence hall entrance, and then turn left on the path before you get to 30th Street. Push the doorbell on the outside to come in. You’ll find us adjacent to the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Women & Gender Resources.

If you’d like to reserve our lounge for an event, email lgbtq@jhu.edu. You can also reserve the D&I community spaces by following this link.

Who We Are

The office was founded in Fall 2013 thanks to the support of a coalition of students, staff, and faculty. We are especially grateful for the support of the Diversity Leadership Council who first proposed the office, the President’s Office, and the Office of the Dean of Student Life. We would love your input too – email us and let us know!

You can also see what we’re up to by finding us on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. Or find many of our events listed on the Hub. Learn about our activity from the past few years from our news and announcements archives as well as by reading our annual reports:
