LGBTIQ student support liaison officers

The LGBTIQ Student Support Liaison Officers (SSLOs) are staff volunteers who have received specialised training to support student transition and gender affirmation.

They promote inclusion and support for LGBTIQ students at the University and can provide information about resources to promote health, safety and connection with other students and the community.
