Driving change Increasing Accessibility Information for Trans students
We the students and staff within SU Sport, University of Bath are committed to the elimination of transphobia and all forms of discrimination within university sport. This includes a commitment to take positive action, recognising the specific needs and barriers that the Trans community faces in accessing sport.
We believe that all our students deserve a right to privacy and discretion.
We are committed to increasing the accessibility of the sporting offer for Trans, Non-binary and Gender-fluid students across the landscape of sport at the university of Bath. We will do this by:
Gender Neutral changing and showering facilities.
If you would like to book this facility for a specific time, please call the STV at 01225 386339 and request use of the private changing facility. When you arrive at reception please indicate that you have done so, and the duty staff will show you to the changing room and unlock it for you.
Mixed/ Non-gendered sessions
Currently, the virtual offer of many of our sports include mixed/non-gendered sessions. Many of these can be found on the what's on page or on individual club pages
As we return to in-person sport, we will look to do an audit of the mixed/Non-gendered sessions that are available.
Lobbying sporting national governing bodies (NGB’s)
We deliver 50 sports with different national governing bodies. We understand that some of these sports have NGB’s with fairer, more comprehensive Trans policies than others. If you believe your NGB has an inadequate Trans Policy, the student voice campaigns team are here to facilitate campaigns and lobbying, with staff and financial resource. Please contact the Sport officer or campaigns lead, Ben Palmer who will be able to help.
