The LGBT Center at OHIO
The LGBT Center at OHIO provides students with a community space, crucial resources, and friendships that last a lifetime. The LGBT Center not only helps students with LGBTQIA+ issues but also provides students with professional and personal resources.
It provides an inclusive community space for people to build relationships with each other. The Center supports students navigating personal crises and provides professional services and works appropriately with LGBTQIA+ people. Additionally, the LGBT Center works with University leadership to define what it means to include, celebrate, and have equity for queer and trans people.

- Supports students with an open environment for working, socializing, or relaxing
- Offers workshops around sexuality, gender identity, and many other LGBTQIA+ issues
- Brings awareness to LGBTQIA+ students on and around campus
