QRC Campus Partners
This fall, we're having drop-in hours in our new office space! We've teamed up with campus partners Student Legal Services, the Women's Resource Center (WRC), and Counseling and Psychological Services to provide advocacy and support in our space which queer students may be more comfortable in. Students can meet with an attorney to discuss legal issues, discuss healthy relationships, or receive advising and counseling. Student Legal Services will be available Tuesdays at 2:00 pm, WRC's Healthy Relationships group will be Wednesdays at 2:00 pm, and Counseling and Psychological Services’ program “Let's Talk” will be Thursdays at 2:00 pm. All of these programs will be available in the Queer Resource Center office which is now located at 458 Smith Memorial Student Union. Anyone is free to stop by, no appointment necessary, and discuss their needs with these Campus Partners in a safe and welcoming LGBTQI space.
Have you always wanted a space to talk about what queer relationships are like? Have an interest in chatting about navigating poly and kink relationships? Interested in exploring how to ask for and talk about sex with your partners? Come to the healthy relationships drop in hour at the QRC on Wednesdays from 2-3 pm and chat with Adrienne Graf a self-proclaimed queermo who has worked within and around the Portland queer scene for many years. Adrienne works at the WRC and has lots of impressive credentials including working at a queer domestic violence support group at Bradley Angle. She knows her relationship stuff. Get into it!
At PSU we strive to build a welcoming campus environment for all students, faculty and staff. We recognize there are hundreds of diverse characteristics that make up each one of us including our orientation, gender expression and gender identity. We honor, respect and celebrate all of these diverse characteristics. U Belong at PSU and that means all of you.
Phillip Zerzan, Chief, Campus Public Safety Office:
The International Student Life Team at PSU supports all international students through orientation programs, immigration and life advising, mentoring programs, scholarships, activities, events and presentations. The team works closely with the Queer Resource Center (QRC) and the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) programming events and opportunities for international students.
The QRC provides international students with a safe place to ask questions and get support. The QRC is a great venue to make new friends, pursue leadership opportunities, and connect with the greater Portland community. Staff at the QRC can support students who are exploring their sexual orientation and gender identity, and are experienced working with international students who are discovering more about their identity while in the U.S..

The Office of New Student Programs welcomes students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, or allies to utilize our many services. Specifically, if you are a current student looking for involvement opportunities, consider applying to become an Orientation Leader (OL). Since OLs support the successful transition of all new PSU students, diversity and inclusion are two guiding elements each year as we select the Orientation Team. Applications are typically due in late January. For more information, please visit www.pdx.edu/orientation/orientationleader.
