Haven is the University of Delaware’s largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ+) Registered Student Organization (RSO).

We are a University-funded and student-run club and though our meetings and events are geared towards members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, all, including but not limited to students and faculty of the University of Delaware, are welcome to come. We are also a safe space where members of the queer community can meet other queer individuals and be open about themselves without fear of judgment.
