CHANGING NAME/GENDER RECORDS

Any student, including transgender, gender nonconforming, gender variant, and non-cisgender students, who wish to designate a preferred name should fill out the Preferred Name Change Form.


CAMPUS HOUSING

On your housing application, you can select your gender as "gender neutral." It functions as a third gender category and means you will be placed in a room with others who selected gender neutral, regardless of their genders. Also, there are many single rooms available in the dorms. Click here for more information.


STEPS TO CHANGE A SEX MARKER

2. Click on ‘Profile, privacy, and emergency'

3. Click on ‘personal profile' (will open a new window and require you to login again)

4. Under ‘Manage Data' click on ‘sex'

5. Choose the marker you want and save

**Female and male are the only options available and we know they are limited.  We continually work with Penn to have more options.
