Western Sydney University is proud to have a tradition of students and staff who identify from diverse sexualities and genders. We understand that studying or working can sometimes hold additional challenges for someone who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer (LGBTIQ). That's why we work hard to ensure that our student and staff support services, facilities and benefits are LGBTIQ inclusive, safe and friendly. All students and staff have the right to access University's support services, facilities and benefits regardless of sexuality or gender. This also means that any family or partner support or benefit offered through the University, is equally available to our students and staff in a same sex partnership or from a family of same sex parents.
