The Lavender Lounge (located in SSC 1310) is a space for the safe and comfortable expression of LGBTQ+ identities and is for JMU students to hang out and meet new people. The space is open the same hours as the Student Success Center, so feel free to hang out anytime! Some additional resources located in the Lavender Lounge include:

Resource Library - More than 1,500 books and resources on all things LGBTQ-related and more! All books are free to check out, and they have no time limit on them for check-out. All resources checked out of the Lavender Lounge library are kept 100% confidential. The library is a safe space where you can read and learn about most any topic of interest.

Self-Expression Closet - Located in the Lavender Lounge, this is a free closet for folks to use. If you are looking for something new to better express yourself, check here! Once each semester we host a Clothing Swap, and during this week we take donations to the clothing closet. We accept gently used chest binders, bras, shirts, pants, skirts, dresses, jackets, sweaters, shoes, purses/bags and other accessories (belts, hats, gloves, scarves, jewelry, etc.).
