Have you heard of the Trans and Gender Diversity Guide? It’s designed to make SFU more accessible to Trans & gender diverse students. Wanna know more? Wanna know how you can help out? Well, we’re offering an information session about the guide on May 18 from 1:30pm-2:30pm.
We’ll go over the current status of the guide, the upcoming goals of the guide, and volunteer opportunities to help with it. If you’ve ever been interested in what exactly the guide is, the sort of work we’re putting into it or how to help us out, come on by! There will be snacks.

Tree Nuts & Peanuts
We do not yet have a policy on tree nuts and peanuts, however, I ask folks to refrain from bringing tree nuts (including coconuts) and peanuts into the space to make it more accessible for folks with airborne peanut and/or tree nut allergies.
Note: There is a small amount of peanut butter currently in our space. We are looking to change that soon so that our space will become accessible to folks with airborne peanut allergies.
OOC Scent Free Policy
We want to keep Out on Campus as safe and accessible as possible for everyone. For this reason, please refrain from using scented products when you visit OOC. We have a small amount of scent free liquid soap. laundry detergent, baking soda and vinegar available for folks to take home.Here are some good resources: Think Before You Stink & Fragrance Free Femme of Color Realness.

We have overhead fluorescent lights installed in our space. We also have two non-fluorescent lamps that we can also turn on. Our lighting depends on the needs of folks using the space.
Our lounge has wifi. Staff and students often bring their laptops into the space to work. There are also three desktop computers in our space that folks sometimes utilize as well. We also have a microwave and fridge in our lounge.
