Is Sunderland LGBTQI+ friendly?

Home / Help and advice / Support / Equality and diversity / Is Sunderland LGBTQ friendly?

The University works actively to ensure that LGBTQI+ staff and students feel able to bring their full selves to our campuses. Sunderland Pride takes place in July and both the University and Student Union are in attendance. Newcastle and Sunderland are among the safest cities for LGBTI+ residents thanks to the low level of hate crimes towards the LGBT community in these cities.

15.8% of our students self-declare as LGBTQI+. We have an LGBTQI+ student society and Pride staff network.
