dc.description.abstractTransgender individuals-those who express a non-nonnative gender identity-experience all aspects of life differently from cisgender peers. Although regularly included in research on and discussion about lesbian, gay, and bisexual identities (LGBT), the transgender experience is overlooked. Institutes of higher education are leaders for both LGBT research and inclusivity, yet they often lack the proper accommodations to fully support transgender students (Renn, 2010). This study focuses on the experience of transgender students in the residence halls at Ball State University. The synthesis of research on transgender expression and interviews with three transgender residents provides a view of the experience of transgender students in Ball State's residence halls. This study, however, is by no means exhaustive and should only be used to further the conversation about accommodations that will allow transgender students to feel safe and included in their on-campus living spaces.
