Our commitment to supporting our trans and non-binary community
Trans awareness: the basics
The University will continue to run a series of online trans awareness training sessions for staff and PGT students, delivered by the charity Gendered Intelligence. These sessions introduce individuals to the key concepts crucial to understanding members of our trans community, terminology and relevant legislation. For more information and to register for an upcoming session visit the Learning Management System (LMS) training calendar or contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Guidance for trans staff and students
As part of the University’s institutional Athena Swan action plan, we have committed to producing guidance intended to support trans students and staff to cover topics including name changes, inclusive facilities, harassment and hate crime, inclusive language and terminology, practical issues, and support. This work will involve consultation with key stakeholders across the University including our trans staff and student community.
All gender toilets
For several years, the University has introduced a number of inclusive facilities across campus, including all gender toilet facilities. We have made a commitment to installing at least one all gender toilet in all new buildings built by the University across our campuses.
We will also maintain gendered and accessible facilities for those who need them
You can search for these facilities via the campus map, by typing in 'all gender toilets'.
