Stonewall Suites LGBTQA Living Community

Stonewall Suites is Montclair State University’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and allied (LGBTQA) living community. This community was established in 2010 and continues to provide students with a comfortable living and learning experience, where residents are placed without consideration of gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. Stonewall Suites seeks to connect students interested in supporting and educating themselves and their community about LGBTQA and other social justice issues. Those living in Stonewall Suites work to connect their experiences or theory they learn in the classroom with opportunities for student involvement through Residence Life and the LGBTQ Center.
