Pitt has many resources aimed at supporting the needs of members of the LGBTQIA+ community.  

University Counseling Center

Each term the UCC offers therapy groups for particular populations, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Learn more about the UCC and/or schedule an appointment

During the fall and spring semesters, the UCC hosts a group to provide LGBTQIA+ students with a safe place to share, explore and express themselves, while supporting each other.  The "Just Me" group meets on Wednesdays from 3:00pm to 4:15pm in the Counseling Center.

Student Health Services, Transgender Care

The University of Pittsburgh's Student Health Service provides primary care, as well as reproductive and sexual health care, tailored to fit an individual student’s specific needs. Transgender students interested in cross gender, hormonal therapy are welcome to come and consult with us.   We will work with the student to develop the best treatment plan for them in collaboration with their mental health care provider.   We provide services related to cross gender therapy and provide ongoing care and follow-up after the initiation and initial adjustment of hormones.   We can also provide referrals for mental health and other transgender related services such as vocal training, electrolysis, surgery, etc.
