Welcome to the LGBT Center

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, proudly identify as LGBTQ+, or a ally, 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 35 years. Join us at 3907 Spruce to study, relax with your friends, and learn more about Penn's LGBTQ life.  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.

What Do LGBTQ students want from their faculty?

Please come visit us!  The LGBT Center is an open, affirming space accessible to all. Our hours are 10a-10p Monday-Thursday, 10a-5p on Fridays, noon-6p on Saturdays, and noon-8p on Sundays.  After 6p Monday-Thursday, as well as during all weekend hours, please swipe your PennCard for access.  If you do not have a PennCard or prefer not to swipe, please push the button so a staff member can buzz you in.  Thank you!


Our staff also advocates on behalf of Penn's LGBT community for sensitive and inclusive University policies and practices. If you or someone you know feels they have been harassed or discriminated against on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, we are here to help. Staff members are available to provide confidential assistance regarding these matters.
