Yellow House and Student Affairs
The Yellow House is located at 140 Stuart Street. This building is operated by the Division of Student Affairs as a dedicated space for student clubs committed advancing social justice, anti-racism, equity, diversity or inclusion on campus. The programs and functions of this House are meant to create a safe and accountable space for queer, racialized and marginalized students be themselves and to build community.
The Division of Student Affairs operates a strong mandate of building a collaborative and responsive campus community where every student and staff member feels a sense of belonging
The Yellow House is an important part of this plan. The administrative structure within the House consists of a Director who reports into the Assistant Dean, Student Life and Learning and Deputy Provost, Academic Operations and Inclusion. A Coordinator and Departmental Assistant report into the Director, and together this team acts as a conduit to resources and structures within the DSA to support and empower Clubs in the House to achieve their goals related to inclusion on campus.
