LGBTQ+ Health

Helping You Feel Your Best 

We’re here to support you and help you navigate all of your healthcare options. Campus Health is dedicated to providing high-quality, respectful, and gender-affirming care for all of our students. Our diverse and multidisciplinary staff have been Safe Zone trained, and there are yearly opportunities for more training. 

You have the option to include your chosen name on your medical record (we will still need your full legal name on file) and the option to designate your gender identity and pronouns on both health history and registration forms. We encourage you to share your pronouns with our staff during your visit. 

We have all gender restroom facilities located inside the clinics on the 1st and 2nd floors.

 

To get started with the services below or if you’re not sure what you need, call 520-621-9202. 

Medical Services

Campus Health is here to support all of your medical needs. Here are some of the medical services you can find in our LGBTQ+ healthcare clinic.  

  • Consultation, initiation, and continuation of hormonal treatment 
  • Letters of support for name and gender marker change 
  • Referral for surgical transition 
  • General wellness visits including at-birth bodies, and bodies in any stage of transition
  • Trans support

Trans Support 

Campus Health is here to support you, whatever stage of transition you’re in. 

Trans Treatment Team

Collaboration between medical and mental health staff ensures continuity of gender-affirming healthcare and direct communication between your treatment team members via the multidisciplinary Trans Treatment Team, which meets periodically to review Campus Health cases and policy. 

Gender Affirming Treatment Benefit

The Student Health Insurance Plan offers Gender Affirming Treatment to plan enrollees. This benefit is available at all three State of Arizona universities and was passed due to advocacy efforts originating at the UA.  The Gender Reassignment benefit affords members critical access to medically necessary, gender-affirming health care. This access to care is a crucial element to the health, academic success, and retention of transgender-identified students.

“People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) are members of every community. They are diverse, come from all walks of life, and include people of all races and ethnicities, all ages, all socioeconomic statuses, and from all parts of the country. The perspectives and needs of LGBT people should be routinely considered in public health efforts to improve the overall health of every person and eliminate health disparities”.  - Centers for Disease Control
