Supporting respectful and inclusive campuses at Dal
While our diverse and inclusive campuses are welcoming to everyone, you can also find resources and support services tailored to specific communities at Dal. We encourage you to reach out and get involved with different communities!
BLACK STUDENT ADVISING

LGBTQ+ & GENDER SAFE PLACES

South House is a volunteer-driven, student-funded DSU service and Halifax’s only full-time women’s centre. It’s a gender-inclusive safe space for all members of the Dalhousie community.
If you’re a student of First Nations descent, the Aboriginal Student Centre can help you form support networks in your studies. It also hosts social activities, cultural events, and information sessions.
The Dalhousie Multifaith Centre is a non-threatening space where students, staff, and faculty can address the basic questions of meaning and purpose in their lives — no matter what their faith, philosophy, or doubt may be.
