The Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center is a vital hub of resources and opportunities on Grounds. We work every day at the intersection of social justice issues that affect students, staff and faculty on Grounds, members of the Charlottesville community, and women and men across the country and the world.

We offer a wide variety of free resources that support the well-being of students, both men and women. Staff members also teach and mentor students through learning and leadership opportunities that combine service work or interning with classroom study of gender equity and other social justice issues.

We are located one door down from OpenGrounds (in the building where the railroad bridge crosses over University Ave at 14th St.). Office hours of 9 to 5 on Monday through Friday are combined with many evening events that take place around Grounds. In addition to information on the Women’s Center website, ongoing updates and event announcements are available by following the Women’s Center’s busy social media channels.
