UWL's WGSS Resource Center (WRC) is located on the Fourth Floor of Centennial Hall, and is combined with the WGSS office—room 4301. The WRC serves as a small library of historical and contemporary feminist materials, as well as a welcoming and inclusive space for students to gather, study, learn about and contribute to activism, collaborate, connect with WGSS faculty, and discuss questions, issues, and concerns.

As a feminist space, the WRC is enriched by student-driven displays on feminist and social justice history and contemporary issues, and by a wide array of books, magazines, and newspapers, some with unique historical value. Student interns in the WRC also provide recommendations for music, films, podcasts, and much more! The WRC collection of books is partial, but ever evolving. The collection has been built primarily through donations from retiring UWL faculty. As funds permit, the WGSS Department updates books and other materials to reflect ever-changing feminist research, writing, and arts production.

The WRC is regularly open from 12:30-4:30 M-F as well as most mornings starting at 9:00 a.m. (Staff availability varies in the morning hours.) The WGSS Department invites you to stop by the WRC, connect with other students and faculty, and enjoy the space!
