Colleges and universities pride themselves on being a second home for their students. However, many of their transgender college students are denied housing, restroom access, and are facing marginalization in the classroom. It is estimated that over half of self- identified transgender individuals are college-age students. Incorporated into this paper is a literature review focusing on research regarding transgender student’s experiences at college, what needs are or are not being met, and what colleges are doing to meet those needs. The purpose of this training is to provide further education and ensure that transgender students have a safer and more inclusive experience at college.
