Change of Name
At Northern Arizona University, you are able to change your Preferred Name as it appears on your Jacks Card, class rosters, grade rosters, Canvas, and the Online Directory – even without a legal name change.
Please note that staff and faculty members must contact Human Resources to change their preferred name.
Gender Inclusive Housing
Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) was established in 2012 with the explicit goal of helping transgender, gender-variant, and questioning students experience a greater sense of safety and belonging while living on campus. GIH provides a supportive and inclusive living environment where a student can room with any other student regardless of sex, gender, gender identity/expression, or sexual orientation. The intended purpose of the program is to provide a living option for students who do not feel comfortable in gender-binary housing options. Priority is given to transgender and gender-variant students. GIH rooms are clustered together as micro-communities within the larger hall community.
More information regarding locations, the application process, and roommate selection can be found through Campus Living.
