LGBT Resource Center


Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the Cornell LGBT Resource Center's webpage.  Here you will find a wide variety of resources, information about the LGBT community at Cornell, and ways to get involved as students, staff, faculty, or alumni.  The LGBT Resource Center was founded in 1994 to be the central hub of LGBTQ life at Cornell.  Located in recently renovated facilities at 626 Thurston Ave., the LGBT RC is here for you regardless of your sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression.  We strive to be an affirming and welcoming space on campus that works to incorporate social justice principles in our programs and services.

The LGBT Resource Center is staffed from 10am to 4pm Monday through Friday.  Our lounge is open during regular building hours for you to enjoy.  Here you will find a PDF version of our LGBTQ Guide to Cornell.  These are also available at the LGBT RC.  Please stop by and say hello or send us an email at  We look forward to meeting you soon!

With Pride,

Brian Patchcoski

Associate Dean of Students/Director, LGBT Resource Center
