Get connected with Rainbow support on campus

At UC, we are working to become a completely inclusive, diverse and welcoming community – where we support Rainbow students and staff, on and off campus. 

UC’s Rainbow Advisor is here for you. They can help you settle in, provide advice if you need someone to talk to and connect you with other Rainbow students on campus. To talk with the Rainbow Advisor, email or drop in for a chat – you’ll find the Rainbow Advisor on level 1 in the Forestry building.

You can stay up-to-date with Rainbow events and info on campus here>
