Trans* Resources and Support

Berklee seeks to be a safe and inclusive campus community for all students, faculty, and staff. In consideration of academic success and wellbeing, and our ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we ask that you take the time to acknowledge the diversity that exists within our community and, in particular, provide a safe and supportive space for transgender and gender nonconforming community members. To ensure that our trans* community members are safe and supported, we have developed several resources, and we encourage you to become familiar with this information. In addition, we will sponsor several dialogues and trainings for those of you who want to learn more about the trans* community.

Below, you will find information and resources for transgender, genderqueer, or gender nonconforming students, faculty, staff, and guests. This includes information on name changes, information about health insurance, inclusive housing options, inclusive restrooms, and additional resources at Berklee and on the internet.
