Summer & Other Programs

The Cantu Queer Center is open Mondays through Fridays during the summer. Queer student programs and organizations do not meet, but the center is open for support, studying, and socializing. Because staff is small, it is best to call the center before stopping by at 459.2468. You may also contact the center director at queer@ucsc.edu
