LGBTQIA+ Student Network
The LGBTQ+ New Student Network at UW Bothell provides support, community, events, information, and resources for any first-year student or transfer student self-identifying as part of the LGBTQIA+/queer umbrella. This includes, but is not limited to, students identifying as lesbian/gay, bisexual/pansexual, transgender (including non-binary/genderqueer), queer, intersex, asexual/aromantic, or questioning. Allies are also always welcome to attend events or request information. If you are a student who would like to join the Network, attend our Husky+ session, "LGBTQIA+ Students: Tea Party," on August 19th from 11am -
There are a number of resources available in the community and at the University of Washington Bothell for students who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. As part of your orientation process, you will have the chance to learn more and connect with this Network and its members.
