Community Specific Campus Resources

Chosen Name Project

Dartmouth recognizes that some students wish to identify themselves by a name other than their Legal Name. For this reason, beginning in the fall 2019 term, Dartmouth will enable students to use a "Chosen Name" where possible in the course of their Dartmouth education. They may also indicate their gender identity and pronoun.

More information for students, employees, and alumni can be found on the Chosen Name Project page.

Community-sourced resource list

In spring of 2022, students and staff began working on a resource list so students could learn more about what's available on and off campus. It is always under construction, so feel free to check it out at and leave a comment or send an email about what else should be included!

Dartmouth LGBTQIA+ Alum Association

The Dartmouth LGBTQIA+ Alum Association (DGALA) strives to foster community between and among the LGBTQIA+ alums of the College by furthering the intellectual, social, cultural and educational well-being of our members and students and providing the College and the greater College community with active support in matters of mutual concern.

DGALA also aims to enhance the experience of LGBTQIA+ persons at Dartmouth and support the College's commitment to diversity by fostering communications between and among our alums and students, faculty, staff, administrators, the other affiliated groups and the College community as a whole.

Rainbow Room

Robinson Hall 105 & 107

The Rainbow Room has a little queer library with a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles, some study areas, and is reservable on EMS. Since it's in Robinson Hall, it is open around the clock and is a space that centers LGBTQIA+ people.

Trans at Dartmouth

OPAL LGBTQIA+ Student Advising is a safe space that is welcoming of all students, and the staff are available to talk to anyone at any time. Additionally, we have a selection of books and articles on gender identity and trans experiences. Counseling and Human Development at Dartmouth offers counseling to students who may be questioning their gender identity and would like to discuss it confidentially with someone.

Dartmouth has a number of single-unit bathroom, shower, and changing rooms across campus that are accessible to people of all gender identities and expressions. Many of these are also ADA accessible.

For locations and details, please view the Gender-Inclusive Restooms @Dartmouth Google Map. We are in the process of updating this map. If you know of a restroom that can be included, please let us know at

Triangle House

Triangle House is part of Dartmouth's Living Learning Community program. Open events are held in the first floor living room. It is first and foremost a residence hall and home to the 25 students who reside there.

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program gives students a theoretical base for a systematic analysis of the construction of gender and the historical, economic, political, social, and cultural experiences of women. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies (LGBTS) courses examine lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identities and politics in historical and contemporary contexts.
