Regent's University London is committed to providing a supportive and safe environment for all students to study in, including any student who identifies as LGBTQIAQ.
This might be the first time thinking about your sexual orientation or gender identity, in which case, there is reassurance to be had in knowing that the university seeks to create a safe environment for you to question and explore, by supporting a policy of diversity and equality for all staff and students.
There is an LGBT+ Student Society which you may wish to join. Regent’s University London also has an Ally Scheme.
An “ally” is a term used to describe someone who is supportive of the LGBT+ community. It is most commonly used to refer to heterosexual people (a "straight ally") but also encompasses LGBT+ people who support each other.
If you'd like to know more about how you can be an ally to lesbian, gay, bi and trans friends and support the LGBT+ community, read our information below on the best way to be an active ally.

Being an ally?
An “ally” is a term used to describe someone who is supportive of the LGBT community. It encompasses non-LGBT+ allies, as well as those within the LGBT+ community who support each other; for example, a lesbian who is an ally to the bisexual community.
Why are we doing this?
We believe Regent’s staff are supporters of equal rights in all forms. We would like to raise awareness and show our support for the LGBT+ community. It is our utmost priority that everyone who studies and works at Regent's is treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their gender identity and sexual orientation.
