Glendon Safe Spaces

Glendon Campus and York University are committed to providing positive, safe spaces on campus.

Glendon Women and Trans Centre

The Glendon Women and Trans Centre is dedicated to providing a positive space where no person is judged based on their gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation. We work to promote the preservation of all human rights with a special emphasis on celebrating the many voices of the women and trans community at Glendon.

This Center is available to you for prayer and meditation only. No other activity (for example, place of study, gathering, event) is authorized in this space. It is forbidden to consume food and drink in the Center.

The Center must remain denomination-free, which means that no religious books, posters or articles are permitted in the Center on a permanent basis.
