Celebrating the diversity of RMIT

Queer Department

Welcome to the Queer Department!

The Queer Department exists to represent, advocate for and empower RMIT students who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex, and those who are curious about or questioning their sexuality.

We are active in organising social events both on- and off-campus. We also run the Queer Lounges across campuses which are safe spaces where queer students can be themselves without being judged. Drop in to study, snooze or socialise!

Harassment of any kind is unacceptable on campus. This includes homophobic bullying, name-calling, or any other behaviour that makes you feel unsafe. RMIT has clear policies against such behaviour. If this is happening to you, contact the Queer Officers or a Students Rights Officer.

Follow us to stay connected with what's going on, find out about events and connect with other Collective members. We also have a Facebook group that is private and confidential, which means posts or activities will not show up on your profile.

Queer Lounges

Queer Lounges are safe spaces on campus for queer students and their allies to meet, relax, organise and socialise.
