QRC hours

Monday - Friday 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The QRC has something for everyone

Whether you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, omnisexual, pansexual, or as ally the QRC has something to offer you! Our space houses a great collection of over 1200 LGBTQ-related books which can be checked out, used as textbooks for classes or research material for papers, and we also have a wide selection of queer movies that can be rented for free. The QRC's student staff members work hard every semester hosting a number of fantastic programs in addition to co-sponsoring many other events with various organizations.

Our lounge and lobby (aka rainbow ski lodge) can be used for organizational meetings, doing homework and studying, or simply hanging out with good friends in a safe and welcoming space.

Announcing our new queer-friendly computer lab! The QRC is proud to announce that we now have two dedicated computers for 7Cs student use. So, come by! You can write a paper, do research, check your email, or what have you, all in the relaxed and welcoming environment of The QRC. Know that the computers are automatically wiped at the end of each use. So if you are doing work, come ready with a method of saving that work.

In addition to the student staff members from the 5Cs and a graduate assistant from Claremont Graduate University, the QRC Director is available for drop-in hours. If you are dealing with issues of sexual orientation or gender identity, coming out, or just to say hi - her door is open!

If you have any questions about queer life at the Claremont Colleges or the Queer Resource Center, please don't hesitate to stop by the QRC. The QRC is located on Pomona's campus south east of Frary Dining Hall, in Walton Commons. Our address is 395 E. 6th Street.
