Trans resources

Transitioning is a uniquely personal experience. We are committed to treating you with respect and dignity and want to provide a safe and comfortable environment that allows you to reach your full academic potential.

The resources found in these pages will provide you with options to make changes to your student record so it better reflects who you are. We recognize that this may or may not include a name or gender change. In the event that you do want to change your name or gender, learn how to start the process by updating your student record.

Your confidentiality is of the highest importance to us. You can update your record online, or if you would prefer to make an appointment, please contact Mhairy McLachlan, Manager Information and Client Services.

If you ever feel as though you are experiencing discrimination or harassment while at Ontario Tech University and would like additional support, please contact an Equity and Inclusivity Advisor.

For more information on our official Gender Designation policy, please visit our Change of Gender Policy page.
