The dedicated community hub is known as the Carden Queer Room and Is used by LGBTQIA+ students only, allies are welcome as guests. The room is used as a study space, social space, a place to wear gender affirming wear and a place to hide away. Carden has a kitchenette and an extensive tea collection, so come on by and chill out.
