Be Yourself Here.

The mission of the LGBTQ Resource Center is to cultivate safe spaces on campus and within our Center’s programs, empowering LGBTQ students to develop their authentic identity, and become proud, successful, engaged members of the UH community.

During the Fall 2020 semester, our physical space will be open, but the majority of our programs will be online. Please check our calendar to see the many programs and workshops we have planned. We are available to assist you Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM through email: lschroeder@uh.edu,  phone: 713-743-5463, or in-person at a social distance with masks.
