Welcome to the University of Southern California's LGBT Resource Center
The LGBT Resource Center is a national leader in LGBT student services and through our programs, services and collaborations with other campus departments we have created a LGBT and Ally inclusive environment for all students.
The Advocate College Guide for LGBT Students named USC among the Top 20 “Best of the Best” LGBT-Friendly Colleges and Universities. Most recently, the university received a “five star” rating recognition from the LGBT-Friendly Campus Climate Index. The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition (GPAC) acknowledged USC as a diversity leader for its inclusive non-discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. In addition, to continue with recruitment of LGBT and Ally students, the center participated in the first west coast LGBT Admissions Fair sponsored by Campus Pride.
The University of Southern California welcomes and encourages applications from LGBT and Ally identified students. In fact, the center has worked with the Office of Admissions, the Queer & Ally Student Assembly (QuASA) and OutReach to create the first in the nation college experience guide specifically for LGBT and Ally students. We invite you to browse through the experience guide for it contains admissions information, financial aid opportunities, and much more about LGBT life at USC.
