Gender and Sexuality

Carleton University is proud to support students of all gender identities and sexual orientations. For students looking to gain more education or support throughout their time on campus, Carleton University offers a variety of services through Health and Counselling Services, the Carleton University Student’s Association and more.


Consent is an enthusiastic, voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. Engaging in a sexual act without the other person’s consent is sexual assault. Consent is ongoing and cannot be implied based on previous history.
