TRANS* @ MSU
Gender neutral restroom map
Created by an MSU student, this map shows all of the gender neutral restrooms on campus. In addition, details are provided about other campus restrooms. We encourage you to use this information when finding a restroom that you are comfortable using.
On-campus housing policy
The department of residence life, housing and dining services is committed to providing an inclusive and engaging on-campus living experience for MSU students. The department is happy to work with students on a one-on-one basis to discuss their individual needs and concerns. If living with someone of the same sex is uncomfortable or unsafe for you because of your sexual orientation or gender identity, please contact Angie Strider, Assistant Director of Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services, at AngelaStrider@MissouriState.edu or 417-836-5536.
Missouri State University’s non-discrimination policy currently enumerates sexual orientation and gender identity and expression as forms of unacceptable discrimination on campus. Inquiries concerning the complaint/grievance procedure related to sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual assault, should be addressed to the Title IX Coordinator, Carrington Hall 205, 901 S. National Ave., Springfield, Missouri 65897, TitleIX@MissouriState.edu, 417-836-4252, or to the Office for Civil Rights.
Student health insurance policy
The MSU student health insurance policy does not currently cover hormones for trans students or any transition-related care.
Chosen name policy
Missouri State University adopted a chosen name policy in the 2016-2017 Academic Year. An incremental roll out has begun allowing students to change the name appearing on different documents, rosters and pages at Missouri State. A student can easily update their chosen name by logging into their My Missouri State page and clicking "Update Chosen Name" under the Directory Information section in the Profile tab.
More information can be found at the Chosen Name for Students page.
