We facilitate and enhance a brave, affirming, liberatory, and celebratory environment for students, faculty, staff, and alumni of all sexual and gender orientation, identities, and expressions.

The University of Washington Q Center is a fierce primarily student run resource center dedicated to serving anyone with or without a gender or sexuality: UW students, staff, faculty, alum, and community members.  We host and support student groups, put on regular programming events, house a lending library, and amplify student voices on our Student Blog.  Explore our website for more about us or stop by the Husky Union Building, Room 315 Monday-Friday between 10am-6pm.


The Q Center website will be undergoing redesign renovations! For inquiries about the website or if you’re having difficulties locating website content, please email uwqcwebmaster@gmail.com.

January Open Mic Night

January 29, 2015, 7:00pm

Q Center (HUB 315)

The theme of this open mic night is Queering Up "Normal." We want to hear what you have to say about normality and how that influences your identities! Come speak up, speak out, and support the people around you. The mic is open to stories, songs, slams, or however you choose to share. Remember to share support, share the stage, and share this event! ----------------------- The HUB is wheelchair accessible, with two elevators to take you to the third floor. There is also a gender neutral bathroom down the hall from the Q Center. We also ask that you not wear strong perfumes to respect others with chemical sensitivities. Thank you!
