Gender Inclusive Care

National data indicates that trans and gender-expansive patients often delay or do not seek sick care or preventive health care. UConn Student Health and Wellness is committed to offering an environment that encourages students to seek healthcare that is inclusive and supportive of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions. We have trans-knowledgeable and trans-supportive college health professionals on staff in order to provide inclusive care, including gyn services and access to sexual assault forensic examiners (SAFE.)

UConn’s student health insurance plan (SHIP) currently covers counseling by a qualified mental health professional, hormone therapy, gender affirming surgery, and genital reconstructive surgery.
