Caltech Safe Zone Program

Safe Zone Program

The purpose of the Caltech Safe Zone Program ("Tech Zone") is to continue to foster an affirming and engaging campus climate by identifying and educating members of our campus community who are visibly supportive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning students, as well as all individuals regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.

The following downloadable documents are used during Caltech's Safe Zone allies training. They were developed by Jami Grosser (Pride Center Coordinator, Cal Poly Pomona) and are published here with her permission:

LGBTQ Lounge & Lending Library

The lounge is a multipurpose room designed to be a safe space for the LGBTQ community at Caltech. The space is available for weekly lunch meetings, movie/game nights, small group meetings, or just as a comfortable space for individuals to come in and relax.

The lending library holds over 500 LGBTQ-related books, journals, magazines, videos, and other resources, including dozens of contemporary DVDs. Items are available for checkout or to read in the lounge.

Both Caltech’s LGBTQ lounge and lending library are located on the second-floor common area of the Center for Student Services (Room 255). Come visit!
