Welcome to the Farm, Class of 2027 and Transfers!

We at Stanford’s Queer Student Resources (QSR) and thrilled to welcome you to QSpot, our physical space in the Fire Truck House, to our larger, intersecting queer campus communities and to the new home waiting for you on the Farm.

QSR is committed to nurturing affirming, inclusive, supportive, open, and vibrant queer cultures and communities at Stanford.  And we’re super-excited, beginning with NSO, to kick off a year of opportunities to make connections, to explore, to take care and to create spaces on campus where all of us can flourish.

NSO Events:

Tuesday , September 19th - QSR Open House 

Come familiarize yourself with the Fire Truck House where QSpot is located, meet members of our student staff, and say hi to the directors. If you have any questions about QSR, Stanford queer community support and resources, come ask them here. Or come just to hangout, to meet new folx and get some snacks and drinks!

Friday, September 22 - Lake Lag S'mores

A signature QSR NSO event!  Join us at the Lake Lag Fire pit for s'mores, great music, and great company. Come with friends or - better yet - come alone! This is a great way to put yourself out there, find new friends and build your community.

Be on the lookout for more events throughout the year! The best way to keep in touch is by following us on social media. Use the link below to access our social media pages and to learn more about all of our programs. .
