We offer a range of services and resources for students who identify with diverse sexual orientations and sex and gender identities.
Rainbow and inclusion is offering online appoints on Zoom during the University closure. You can book an appointment through rainbow and inclusion advisor Georgia Andrews. Call 027 359 6739 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Victoria University of Wellington, our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual/agender (LGBTQIA+), and takatāpui communities are known as the Rainbow community.
The University's rainbow and inclusion adviser supports LGBTQIA+ and takatāpui students and works with our community to make sure our campuses are a safe and inclusive environment for students of all sexualities, genders and sex characteristics.
