The LGBT+ Community is a space to share your ideas, opinions and concerns about being an LGBT student at Coventry University. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to view what events we have coming up.

We organise events, share news, campaign, suggest policy, and do what we can to make Coventry University a better space for LGBT individuals.

The Community isn't just for LGBT+ individuals, and it's entirely up to you how involved you want be. If you're passionate about equity and diversity, then join the Community to include LGBT+ content in your personalised news and updates.
