Chomping Out Queerphobia
This symbol indicates a safe and affirming place for LGBTQQIAAP people.

The UF Student Health Care Center is committed to non-discrimination with respect to race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations, genetic information and veteran status. To that end, we strive to provide students the right medical care and advice related to their individual bodies and perspectives.

Several SHCC staff members have completed the Gator Allies workshops offered by LGBTQ Affairs at UF. From this training, participants have gained:

  • Further understanding of heteronormativity and homophobia, and how it affects everyone;
  • Further understanding of what it means to be an ally to the LGBTQ community; and
  • Increased awareness and understanding of current LGBTQ issues.
