Rainbow Lounge and Library

The Rainbow Lounge is UMKC’s physical space for LGBTQIA+ inclusion and resources.

A Welcoming Environment

The official UMKC LGBTQIA+ resource space, this welcoming spot for students — regardless of sexual or gender diversity and expression — to reflect or relax is affectionately referred to as our LGBTQIA+ living room. Here you can discover literature and resources about and by the UMKC LGBTQIA+ student community.

We ask that all guests help maintain the Rainbow Lounge as a space of inclusion.

  • Student Union, Room 325
  • Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
  • Only two people allowed in the lounge at a time during Fall 2020
