What’s in the QRC?

Lounge – Our lounge and lobby (aka rainbow ski lodge) can be used for organizational meetings, doing homework and studying, or simply hanging out with friends in a safe and welcoming space.  Contact us to inquire about reserving the QRC for a future meeting!

Computer Lab – We have one computer for 7C students to use. Come to write a paper, do research, check your email, and more, all in the relaxed and welcoming environment of the QRC.  The computer does not require a log in, and information on them is automatically wiped at the end of each use, so if you are doing work, come ready with a method of saving that work (flash drive, email it to yourself, etc). We also have lots of tables where people can set up their own computers and study or relax.

Library – The QRC contains a collection of over 2,000 books and movies related to sex, gender, and sexuality, so there is something for everyone!  Books and movies are available to be checked out for free for 3 weeks at a time.  Take a look at our LibraryThing page to search through our book and DVD collection. Most of our collection is made up of generous donations from friends, allies and alumni.  We also welcome recommendations of new books and movies to add to our collection, and request feedback from 7C professors to expand our collection with texts relevant to what is being taught today.

 

Clothing Closet – Thanks to a large number of donations, the QRC has been able to open up a clothes closet! Members of the community can come in to add to their personal closets, swap out clothes, or drop off gently used clothes. We focus on clothing for gender non-conforming folks, students who may be transitioning, and professional attire, but we welcome any and all donations! In addition to clothes, we also have a few binders, shoes, and accessories.
