COVID-19 Information - Virtual Services

Multicolored border with the message: Gender & Sexuality Services. We are here to support you! | @unilgbtq | DM us for a Discord link

While our office is physically open when the Maucker Union is open, Gender & Sexuality Services continues to provide on-campus and virtual support. We ask that our community members visit for the most up to date information, as well as tips for keeping yourself and your loved ones safe. Our community has shown great strength through this time of uncertainty and we are incredibly proud of how our community members have stepped up to support one another. We are always here for you. Please don't hesitate to let us know how you are doing and what you need.
In accordance with the latest Forward Together guidance, GSS will return to normal on-campus operations no later than July 1, 2021. Virtual meetings will continue to be offered.
For Students
Individual Support
Our LGBTQ+ students need support during this time period as they have additional stressors in this time period including potentially going home to a non-inclusive environment, having to stay in Cedar Falls due to family rejection, and feeling socially isolated from their LGBTQ+ peers. GSS is committed to providing a sense of community for our students.
If you are an LGBTQ+ student in need of support or connection to resources, please connect with our office at or through direct message on any of our social media accounts.

Virtual GSS
GSS continues to offer both in-person and virtual meeting options. To schedule a meeting, please email
We strongly encourage our LGBTQ+ students to join our virtual community on Discord by DMing or e-mailing us for an invite link. Discord is a text and voice chat available on a desktop browser or as an app at Our moderators can help you learn how to use it if needed!
Please contact us at or by DMing any of our social media accounts if you have any ideas, feedback, or contributions for our community in this time.
