I'm Kyle Crompton, your LGBTQ+ Officer for 19/20.

The LGBTQ+ Student Community is a space to share your ideas, opinions and concerns about being an LGBTQ+ Student at Coventry University.

We organise events and campaigns, suggest policy, and do what we can to make Coventry University a better space for you.

The Community isn't just for LGBTQ+ Students, you can also join as an ally and it's entirely up to you how involved you want be.
