About Gender & Sexuality Programs 

Originally founded as a Women’s College and with an impressive track record of LGBTQIA inclusion over the past decade, Connecticut College is committed to fostering an equitable community on our campus. In service of that goal, Gender and Sexuality Programs houses both our LGBTQIA and F.R.E.E Centers, both of which are located in adjacent campus buildings - Burdick and Smith Houses, respectively.

Both of these centers serve as vibrant community hubs where dialogue and exploration of gender and sexuality is encouraged through social events, educational offerings, resource libraries, and more. In each of these spaces, visitors will be greeted by trained student staff who are able to offer resources on a variety of topics, as well as connect students with on campus resources, as needed.
