Resources for LGBTQ2+ Students

ON CAMPUS

Out on Campus

Out On Campus (OOC) is SFU’s LGBTQIA2S+ centre, brought to you by the SFSS with further support from the GSS. OOC provides a safer space for people of all genders and sexuality. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, OOC has created a Discord Server open to all SFU and FIC students, where you can connect to SFU’s queer community, access peer support from staff with mental health first aid training and other students, and join community-building events that will support your wellbeing and social connection. You can also sign up for their newsletter  where you’ll receive regular updates about upcoming online events, links to online resources to support your mental health and wellbeing, and links to financial support available to you.


Sexual Health

SFU Health provides trauma informed LGBTQIA2S+ gender-affirming care to support students’ diverse needs. Connect with an Access Case Manager at a Zoom drop-in for information about service options and providers, or make an appointment with Barb, Registered Nurse.

SFU Burnaby Washrooms

Find a universal/all-gender washroom on campus if you prefer to use gender-inclusive washrooms.


The Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies

In addition to its regular programming and course offerings on LGBTQ issues and ideas, the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies is committed to supporting local LGBTQ programs and organizations in the Lower Mainland, and in particular, the generation of queer intergenerational dialogue.


Transitioning Students

SFU Health is here to support you as you make informed choices and changes. If you’re interested in receiving hormone injections, talk to a doctor at our clinic first and afterwards, book with one of our nurses for weekly injections. Read more about hormone therapy.

  • Learn to self-inject in a supportive environment
  • Talk about chest binding or about other concerns with the nurse
  • Receive a referral for top/bottom surgery (both now done locally) after discussing the process with one of our doctors.
