At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we stand with survivors of gender-based violence. The Women’s Center works to promote a supportive environment at UVA by actively engaging in discussions about social change, connecting with state and national advocacy organizations, and perhaps most importantly, by supporting the many students whose leadership among their peers is essential to bringing about a safe and healthy University community.

As always, students in need of a quiet space when the air waves are full of news focused on violence may visit the Room to Breathe at the Women’s Center. We encourage students interested in information about additional support services to inquire by phone at 434-982-2361 or in person at 1400 University Avenue. We are open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. When demand for our services exceeds what we are able to offer, we work to connect students to other resources on Grounds and in the Charlottesville community.
