St George's, University of London is committed to LGBT equality. Under the Equality Act 2010 a higher education institution should not discriminate against a student at their institution in the provision of education, or access to any benefit, facility or service, by excluding them or by subjecting them to any other detriment because of their sexual orientation.


We aim to provide an inclusive environment where staff and students can thrive and prosper without any barriers.

Sexual orientation discrimination law covers all workers and all types of organisations in the UK. It covers recruitment, employment terms and conditions, pay and benefits, training, promotion and transfer opportunities, redundancy and dismissal.

The LGBT staff network group

We have a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) staff network group to input into sexual orientation equality at the institution. Any staff member is welcome to join this group, regardless of their sexual orientation, as long as they are supportive of LGBT equality. 

There is a LGBT staff network at the university. It organises events and is also able to offer confidential support. For more information email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


St George’s takes part in Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index which is a benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace. We are committed to making our workplace inclusive and will be embarking on further work to progress further LGBT equality.
