The Women's Resource Center

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is a supportive space for the Hamline community to work toward creating a more equitable, socially just, and violence-free world for all women and create greater gender equity through programming, academic and community engagement, and direct resources.

The WRC also provides free menstrual and sexual health supplies to Hamline students in collaboration with Counseling and Health Services and Hamline Student Congress. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to join us and access our services.

Collaborations

We love partnering with other offices and organizations. Reach out to us at wrc@hamline.edu if you're interested in a collaboration. In addition to partnering with other office son campus, we partner with student organizations as well as off-campus partners like Advocates for Human Rights and Breaking Free.

Menstrual and sexual health resources

The WRC is dedicated to making our resources available to every student who needs them. That's why everything is free for Hamline students.

We provide a variety of menstrual and sexual health supplies, including UTI tests, emergency contraception, and options for people with allergies and sensitivities.

Our office in Anderson 320 is fully stocked, and we have small paper bags to package your supplies if you'd like to be discreet. To request an item we don't have stocked, visit us or email us at wrc@hamline.edu.

Sexual violence prevention

We have resources to help you identify unwanted sexual behaviors, understand your rights as a survivor, and access support as you heal from trauma. We also have resources to help secondary survivors (including partners, family, and friends) learn how to support a loved one who has experienced sexual violence. While we are not a confidential campus resource, our staff is here to listen and support you.

We believe everyone deserves to feel safe. If you've been sexually assaulted, get help now.

If you are unsafe or in crisis and need immediate assistance, please contact Hamline Public Safety at 651-523-2100, Counseling and Health Services at 651-523-2204, or call 911. There are also several 24-hour crisis lines listed below.
