A Message from the Rainbow Center

Hello LGBTQIA+ and Allied Community!

Everyone is welcome at the Rainbow Center.  We pride ourselves on a family-like environment with academic and social opportunities.  We have been serving UConn's diverse communities of gender identities, gender expressions, and sexualities since 1998.  The fun and amazing staff provides resources and services to the wider campus community of students, faculty, staff, and local residents. Please check out our Meet the Staff page in order to get to know each of us.

This is the Rainbow Center's 21st Anniversary.  Since our founding, the Rainbow Center has been named one of the best 100 gay-friendly campuses in the country, and received a 4.5 out of 5 rating on the Campus Pride Index Report. We'd love for you to join us at an Out to Lunch Lecture or other upcoming event.

In the article, Shute talks about the importance of gender affirming healthcare and touches on some of the avenues offered through UConn Health.
