As a supportive and inclusive community, Jesus College is committed to the University's Transgender Guidance and Policy. The first point of contact for a student wanting to come out as trans at College is the Academic Director ( Other members of staff, such as those in the Welfare Team, may also be approached.

We acknowledge that some students may have concerns about coming out as trans (perhaps regarding those at home finding out, or about visas if they are an international student) and we can certainly be flexible in coming to arrangements on such issues if they are raised. Students requiring time away from their studies for medical reasons should feel free to mention this to us so that options for deferral and/or suspension can be discussed. All conversations regarding this process will be handled sensitively and respectfully.

Further information about University-wide policy and welfare provision for students who want to transition is available on the University’s LGBTQ Society website. Students may also find Gendered Intelligence resources useful – especially the mentoring for students.
