Queer at RUB

RUB is an academic home for everyone. Diverse experiences and lifestyles are part of our everyday reality. We learn from each other and with each other, in order to shape and change our campus life and academic culture together.

At RUB, everyone can be who they are – regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We are committed to educating people about the different realities and ways of life in projects and programmes and watch out carefully for discrimination.

Changing your name

Transgender students at RUB can have their name and gender changed in official documents. If you would like to use this option, please contact the Registrar’s Office with the relevant form.


Alfried Krupp Experimental Laboratory for Young People:
Tracing the footsteps of the German and Russian LGBTQ community

For one day, students slip into the role of cultural researchers who deal with the subject of “sexual and gender diversity”. First, they get an overview of Slavic studies and the relevance of the topic outside academia. They then independently research the history and present of the LGBTQ community in Germany and Russia.
