Thank you for your interest in the Stony Brook University Safe Space! This website is intended to introduce the Safe Space Program to the University community. It is here to encourage faculty, staff, and students to become active and effective allies to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community.

Stony Brook Safe Space

Our mission is to ensure that Stony Brook University becomes a more inclusive place for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) people by fostering a supportive learning and working environment.

The Goals of Safe Space are:

  • To create campus spaces where LGBTQ persons feel safe, supported, and valued as members of our University or campus community.
  • To provide information about resources and appropriate referrals for members of the campus community seeking additional support and information in this area.
  • To expand the network of allies on campus.
  • To build awareness of the issues affecting LGBTQ persons.


The Safe Space Program is assisting former LGBTA members in creating an Alumni Group. The purpose of the Alumni Group is not only to reunite former LGBTA members but also to connect them to current students involved in the LGBTA student group. If you are an alumni of the LGBTA please consider becoming involved in the LGBTA Alumni Group by filling out the alumni form below.
