College Recommendations for LGBTQIA+ Students

Recommendations on College Facilities to Evaluate when you visit/research a particular college:

- Residence Halls (Do they have gender neutral housing?)

- Bathrooms (Are there single stall bathrooms in every building, etc.)

- Campus Climate (Where geographically is the campus located? Academically, can you identify programs that explore and educate students about gender identity,feminism, etc)

Tips

- The more information there is about non-gender conforming students, programs, and facilities available on a college website, the more likely they are to accommodate LGBTIA+ students

- Campus Healthcare: Does it also cover hormone replacement therapy?

- Name Changes: Depending on the school, you may need to contact the registrar, title IX officer and/or residence hall before you arrive 

- Institutional Support: Is there a resource center for LGBTQIA+ students?
