Welcome to the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Center, a home away from home for sexual and gender minorities and their allies at the University of Pennsylvania. Whether you are questioning your identity, in the process of coming out, or proudly identify as LGBTQ, the Center is your space. Not only do we offer peer mentorships, tons of space to study and socialize, and a calendar full of events, we're also a social and political hub for the queer community on campus, hosting over 25 undergraduate and graduate student groups. We are one of the oldest and most active LGBT centers in the country, and have been proudly serving the Penn queer community for over 30 years. Join us at 3907 Spruce to study, relax with your friends, and learn more about LGBTQ life at Penn.  We are all committed to serving the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Pennsylvania.

At the LGBT Center you'll find: a colorful lounge furnished with plush couches and a wide-screen TV; a multi-purpose room complete with a kitchen; a library and study space stocked with hundreds of queer books; and a CyberCenter where, yes, you can print for free - as long as you bring your own paper and limit yourself to 25 pages per day.
