Queer Community Alliance Center

Spring 2021, the Queer Community Alliance Center is temporarily closed.

We will be offering remote programming. To hear about programming, please join the QCA mailing list.

If you are looking for a virtual LGBTQIA space, check out the Five College Virtual Office Lounge at the UMass Stonewall Center.

The Queer Community Alliance Center (QCAC), located in Greenwich Donut 4, began as a student group, and in 1992 became an institutionalized part of the College. The QCAC is a part of the department of community advocacy in the division of student life. The QCAC is overseen by Hampshire College Queer Services, and strives to support a vibrant and intentional LGBTQ+ community by offering support and affirmation around gender, sexuality, and intersecting identities. The QCAC open hours are dependent on social coordinator volunteers. While classes are in session, the center is typically open in the evenings. 

For more information about queer services, please contact Emily Rimmer, director of women's and queer services, at erimmer@hampshire.edu. Her office is located in the Center for Feminisms in Enfield.
