LGBTQ+ Students @ Exeter

Student Communities / LGBTQ+ Students

Whether you’re confident in your gender identity and sexual orientation, or exploring who you are, Exeter has a thriving community of LGBTQ+ students ready and keen to welcome you. We’ve designed this page to help you find your community and to draw together all the information you’ll need to make the most of your time at Exeter.

You Students’ Guild is here for you – whether you need confidential advice, or you want to start a campaign, our role is to support you. We’ll use this page to update you on our work around advocating for improved processes which better recognise gender, night safety, access to healthcare services and more.

Have something you want our help to challenge? Talk to us and let’s find a solution!

NUS Liberation Conference

This year’s Liberation Conference will be a high-energy, impactful campaigning space - moving away from reacting to the symptoms, and going after the root causes instead.
