Trans and Gender Inclusive Resources
  • Gender Neutral Housing at Ohio University
  • Trans Inslusive Healthcare:  In 2013, Student Senate issued a change to the Student Health Plan; the health plan will now include trans* related healthcare services such as hormone therapy and gender affirming surgeries. To learn more about this new policy and practice, contact the LGBT Center (lgbt@ohio.edu) or Campus Care (740-593-1660) to learn more. 
    • Students can request anytime during their visit to Campus Care for staff and providers to use their preferred name. The students preferred name will be noted in their medical record. Unfortunately, in order to bill the visit properly, the students legal name must continue to be listed. Should the student legally change their name, Campus Care will no longer used a preferred name field but instead change all demographic fields so that their previous name no longer displays.

 

Single Occupancy Restrooms

Several years ago the LGBT Center worked to make restrooms on campus more accessible to transgender, gender variant, and gender non-conforming students, faculty and staff, as well as others who wish to use a single user restroom such as families and individuals with different medical needs. There are currently over 30 restrooms on campus that are not gender specific, however many of these have limited access (see below).   With all of the new construction and renovations on Athens Campus, the university is committed to making sure that buildings have at least one gender inclusive and accessible restroom. The LGBT Center has partnered with Office of Institutional Equity and others to continue the effort of increasing the number of single user restrooms in academic and administrative buildings. Below is a current list of the single user restrooms, please note that the list does not cover all buildings and was generated by students who canvassed the Athens Campus--with the construction taking place on campus that list may not be the most up to date. If you know of changes or updates, please send those to lgbt@ohio.edu so we can update our list.
