Trans Resources


Health

Georgia Tech's Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) pharmacy benefits cover hormone treatments. It does not, on the other hand, cover gender alignment surgery. If you're on a different insurance plan, talk to your provider. Note that doctors at Stamps Health Services do not prescribe hormones; however, they will provide referrals to off-campus practitioners if required. If you have any questions, contact Shan Baker.


Housing

Georgia Tech has gendered housing on campus. If you're uncomfortable living in a situation that doesn't align with your gender identity, Housing is here to help you. If you're a first year, contact Brett Hulst, the Assistant Director of Housing for Freshman Experience. If you're not a first year, contact Dan Morrison, the Director for Residence Life. They are both more than willing to help find a housing solution that works for you. If you need any other help or someone to guide you through the process, Dean Stephanie Ray, the Director of Diversity Programs, is here to help you.


Name Change

Georgia Tech cannot officially change your name unless it is changed legally. To change your name legally in Georgia, this is a good starting place. Once your name is changed legally, you should contact the registrar, Reta Pikowsky to get it changed at Georgia Tech. If you want help changing the name that your professors call you or the experience in your lab or graduate program, contact Dean Stephanie Ray, the Director of Diversity Programs. Dean Ray can also help graduate students by providing coming out resources and workshops for graduate programs.


Equal Employment Opportunity Statement

Georgia Tech’s EEO statement includes protection for gender identity. If you are harassed in any way for your gender identity, contact Ash Moss of the GTPD or Pride Alliance.


Bathrooms

Every new building built on Georgia Tech’s Campus will have gender neutral bathrooms. The gender neutral bathrooms on campus are all listed here. The are also all on this map. If you know of another gender neutral bathroom or have knowledge of the handicap accessibility or equipment (urinals, trash cans for menstrual products, etc) please email us and let us know. If you are spending a lot of time in a certain area or building that doesn’t have gender-neutral bathrooms and you want them, then Dean Ray can help you make arrangements.
