RISD offers a welcoming environment for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning. Members of RISD’s LGBTQQ community get together regularly through a number of student groups and organizations—including RISD Feminists, SHARE (Sexual Health and Relationship Educators) and the Queer Student Association (QSA)—providing programming, education, social activities and support.
RISD’s office of Intercultural Student Engagement also provides resources and support for LGBTQQ students. Feel free to contact the Office of Residence Life or Student Affairs with any questions or concerns.
