In January of 2003, the Unity House, located at 100A Bexley Place, was established. The center operates foremost as a safe space for GLBT students, members of the faculty, administration, and staff, but is intended to be an open and welcoming place for all members of the Kenyon College community. The Unity House serves to offer a supportive, educational, social and cultural environment in order to enhance awareness and acceptance about gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and ally concerns throughout the Kenyon College community. This house strives to erase stigma associated with the non-heterosexual community and promote greater equality on and off campus.
Chris Kennerly, Associate Dean of Students, serves as the administrative liaison for the house. The house is maintained by student managers and programming occurs with the help of a Program Board; interested students, faculty, administrators and staff, regardless of sexual orientation, are encouraged to join the programming board and help facilitate the house goals.
Unity House is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the academic year.
Building is open for meetings and public use. House policies, mission statement, and availability of facility are available upon request from the House managers.
