LGBTIQ+ services and support

Everyone has a place here at Bond.

Bond University genuinely treats all students with the same level of consideration, empathy and duty of care including those who may be lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex or questioning (LGBTIQ). We strive to provide a learning environment that is safe and supportive and we actively encourage all students to understand and respect individuality and diversity.

Below is information about how Bond University caters to the needs of LGBTIQ students both on and off campus, important to both prospective and current students alike.

LGBTIQ Support Services

We are pleased to announce that Bond University is now a member of ACON's Pride in Diversity group that works toward inclusion for people of diverse sexualities and genders.  ACON is a fiercely proud community organisation whose first priority will always be the health and safety of those they engage with.  Our membership includes access to a large resource collection as well as support programs, training and consulting.  

The Bond Diversity Advisory Committee will be consulting with our Pride in Diversity Relationship Manager to arrange for a meaningful and far-reaching access plan for all employees and students.  Watch this space for future updates and training initiatives.
