The Women and Gender Resource Center is located at 1101 Jackson Avenue, Tuscaloosa, AL. The building is adjacent to East Edge Apartments and near UAPD and the Law School. The WGRC entrance is at the back of the building. If you drive, the secretary will offer you a parking pass when you arrive.

The WGRC can be reached after hours and on weekends and holidays by calling UAPD at 205-348-5454 and asking to speak with the WGRC on call advocate. The dispatcher may ask for your name or CWID, but you can request to speak with us anonymously if you prefer.
