Gender Identity and Housing
University Housing recognizes the student’s birth sex or preferred gender identity, whichever the student identifies in MyMav and on the housing application. University Housing will consider male or female designations provided in the housing assignment process and will not be aware if such designations represents sex assigned at birth or the gender identity in which the students identifies with. The FAQ’s below have been developed based on the flow of information from the University Registrar’s MyMav data source to University Housing.
Other Important Questions
I am a student in your [class name], [section number]. My name will show up on your roster as [insert legal name/dead-name here]; but my chosen name is [insert chosen name here] and I use [insert pronouns here] pronouns. Using my legal/birth name, or dead-name, on attendance rosters/group assignments puts me into an awkward and potentially dangerous situation.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can also contact Jessica Sanchez with the UTA LGBTQ+ Program at email@example.com with questions and/or for resources. I look forward to your class this semester.
Thank you very much for your understanding.
