MIT is a diverse and dynamic community that includes people of varied gender identities and expressions. The Institute’s Nondiscrimination Policy explicitly disavows discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

LBGT@MIT fosters a trans* inclusive environment at the Institute by offering training, support, and advocacy. The staff of LBGT@MIT is available to advise and assist MIT community members with any trans*-related questions or concerns. We invite you to call, drop by, or send us an email to share questions, suggestions, or concerns. All correspondence will be held in confidence.

This site gathers information related to trans* life at MIT. Please know that policies, processes, and resources continue to evolve. We update information posted here as we become aware of changes. Let us know if you find something here that is outdated! For support and further information, we invite you to contact us.



trans@mit is maintained by LBGT@MIT, a program of the Division of Student Life, and a part of the Student Activities Office. MIT is a member of the National Consortium of Directors of LBGT Resources.
