Community Information

About the LGBTQIA+ Community

On the Dartmouth campus, the LGBTQIA+ community has many outlets. Whether learning about drag performance in a student group, joining with OPAL to host events for Pride, living in the Triangle House, or finding queer community your own way, we're here to help craft the spaces you need on campus.

What does LGBTQIA+ mean?

LGBTQIA+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual/Aromanic/Agender. Gender and sexuality are fluid, and if you do not find yourself represented in the terms listed, the + is for you.


Where can I turn if I have been the victim of rape, domestic violence, sexual harassment, or transphobic incident?

Students have several resources on campus. OPAL is a safe space that is welcoming of all students, and staff are available to talk to anyone with a concern. For sexual assault victim support and advocacy, find resources here. In addition to these resources, for transphobic incidents, utilize the Dartmouth Bias Incident Reporting System and Title IX.
