Study & Event Space

The RCSGD Lounge is home to several resources, but is also a wonderful resource itself! This space fits up to 20 people looking to refill on snacks and water, study at our tables and couches, work on class assignments in our cyber center, or rest and meet new friends at the many events hosted in our space. Our friendly team of Office Assistants are there to greet you and help maintain a fun and welcoming environment. 

To reserve the RCSGD lounge for your LGBTQIA+ related event/meeting please fill out the RCSGD Lounge Reservation Request. Reservation requests are for after center hours.
