Pitt has many resources aimed at supporting the needs of members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Supporting Trans and Non-Binary Students: A Resource Fair
On January 22, 2021 students, staff, faculty and community partners came together to share resources available to Pitt’s trans and non-binary students. This resource fair included information about preferred/chosen name initiatives, student organizations, campus facilities, academic departments, residence life and much more. This event was sponsored by the University’s Transgender Working Group and can be viewed at any time.
University Counseling Center
The University Counseling Center (UCC) is committed to assisting Pitt students. The UCC offers individual counseling, couples counseling (opposite-sex and same-sex partners welcome), and group therapy. Each term the UCC offers therapy groups for particular populations, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Learn more about the UCC and/or schedule an appointment.
During the fall and spring semesters, the UCC hosts a group to provide LGBTQIA+ students with a safe place to connect with other folks in the queer and trans community to talk about all matters of gender and sexuality. The "True Selves" group meets on Fridays from 10-11 a.m. in the Counseling Center. To participate, please contact the Counseling Center at 412-648-7930.
Student Health Services, Transgender Care
The University of Pittsburgh's Student Health Service provides primary care, as well as reproductive and sexual health care, tailored to fit an individual student’s specific needs. Transgender students interested in cross gender, hormonal therapy are welcome to come and consult with us. We will work with the student to develop the best treatment plan for them in collaboration with their mental health care provider. We provide services related to cross gender therapy and provide ongoing care and follow-up after the initiation and initial adjustment of hormones. We can also provide referrals for mental health and other transgender related services such as vocal training, electrolysis, surgery, etc.
