Dionyx was started in 2016 specifically for open-minded students and adolescents in Maastricht / Limburg. It was started as a cooperation between COC Limburg and students from Maastricht University and Zuyd Hogeschool after the need for activities specifically for the LGBTQIA+ students was discussed in 2015.
Once a week, Dionyx organises various activities to increase the social interaction between students and adolescents of the LGBTI community. Examples are monthly themed parties, film nights, but also debates and workshops. Dionyx aims to create a space where open-minded people have a space of their own, with space for discussions and meetings.
Furthermore we aim to increase the knowledge of LGBTI issues with (international) students of Maastricht University and Zuyd Hogeschool. Dionyx’ activities are held every thursday during the academic year during our special Student Nights in Café Rosé from 19:00 to 01:00 with free entry.
