Womxn’s Center

The Womxn’s Center is devoted to helping students maximize their academic and personal success at UC Santa Cruz. 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 womxn’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: Womxn'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 womxn's community.

The Womxn's Center is located at the Cardiff House, an historic farmhouse near the Carriage House in the lower campus. Center hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, please contact (831) 459-2072, email women@ucsc.edu, or visit the Women's Center website.
