Women’s Center

The Women’s Center is devoted to helping students maximize their academic and personal success at UCSC. The center is a student-run resource center that creates and sponsors student-oriented programs, workshops, writing collectives, film screenings, and discussions throughout the academic year. Topics addressed include women’s leadership and empowerment, gender and sexuality, race and culture, health and wellness, reproductive rights, advocacy to end sexual violence, and much more. Center staff are available as a resource for on- or off-campus referrals and informal advising.

All students are encouraged to get involved in the center's annual events, which include Sister Solidarity: Women's Heritage Month, Take Back The Night, and more. Other opportunities for involvement include volunteering and work-study paid internships. The center is the ideal space to study, take a break from classes, check out a book from the lending library, and connect with the women's community.

The Women's Center is located at the Cardiff House, an historic farmhouse near the Carriage House in the lower campus. For more information, please visit the Women's Center website.
