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.
