College Recommendations for LGBTQIA+ Students

College Facilities

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.)
  • 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?
