Fostering supportive & engaging communities

Our Student Centres bring students from all different backgrounds and communities together. Find like-minded peers who share your experiences, and work together to make our campus and the world a better place.

Funded and supported by LUSU, our centres are run throughout the year by paid and volunteer staff. These centres hold many events throughout the year, and advocate for causes both within the university and the wider community. They also provide a diverse assortment of additional resources to aid and support students throughout their university experience.

Food Resource Centre

LUSU’s Food Resource Centre provides confidential food resources and anti-poverty support to any student pursuing a degree at Lakehead. The centre also runs campaigns, and workshops, while raising awareness of the prevalence of food insecurity in our communities. At LUSU, we strongly believe that economic barriers should not prevent students from pursuing their academic goals, and believe that healthy food choices should be accessible to all. Students experiencing a food emergency can visit us once every 2 weeks.


The aim of The Food Resource Collective is to break down the stigma that surrounds accessing emergency food resources on campus by creating a welcoming environment for students. The Food Resource Collective includes three sub-divisions: The Pantry, Fresh Market, and Good Food Box.

Pride & Gender Equity Centre

The unified Pride Central and Gender Equity Centre offers a wide range of resources, support services, and programs aimed at celebrating and advocating for the LGBTQ+ community while simultaneously addressing issues of gender equity. Whether you need a safe space to express your identity, seek guidance on gender-related matters, or participate in educational workshops and community-building events, our center is here to support and empower you. Join us in our mission to create a campus environment where everyone can thrive and feel valued.

Indigenous Students' Resource Centre
Teachings, Culture, & Tradition

The ISRC is dedicated to providing Lakehead students with opportunities to get involved and learn about indigenous teachings, ceremonies, and traditions. We run fun and engaging activities like movie screenings, workshops, and even things like building a birchbark canoe, there is always something amazing to experience at our Centre.
