About the LGBTQ* Center

The LGBTQ* Center creates an open and inclusive environment for LGBTQ* people in the Stony Brook community who are interested in finding community, developing their understanding of LGBTQ* issues, and seeking support or advocacy for their needs. 

At 1,967 square-feet, the LGBTQ* Center  includes a multipurpose lounge, a fully functional collaborative learning area (CoLA) featuring state of the art technology for students to utilize, and a spacious conference workroom. The Center is open for all members of the Stony Brook community to come and relax, meet up with friends, study, and engage in a wide range of discussions. 

The LGBTQ* Center is one of several initiatives created by the University to support LGBTQ* communities, including the adoption of the Preferred or Chosen Name Policy (P400), the addition of all-gender restrooms, and the creation of more gender-inclusive housing options on campus. 


Located on the second floor of West Side Dining, the best way to access the LGBTQ* Center is through the east entrance to the building near the Market at West Side. When coming into the building, make a left and go up the stairs, or take the elevator, where you will then reach the Center. Please call the Center for any accessibility needs, at (631) 632-1690.
