Prospective & New Students

The UC Davis LGBTQIA Resource Center is one of the largest of its kind in the nation! We are happy to offer information for prospective students, and help first year and transfer students find community on campus. 

If you are considering attending UC Davis and are able to visit the campus, we encourage you to come by our center during open hours to take a tour, meet our staff, and learn about the resources we offer. You can also reach out to any of our career staff to get more information. 

We also offer outreach and an open house during Aggie Day - come say hi!
