LGBTQ+ History Month
Going live this LGBTQ+ History Month
We're supporting everyone to live, work, and study positively at Warwick. This project works to improve access to support for HIV+ staff and students, provide information on HIV testing and prevention, and develop understanding and allyship.
Gender Expression Fund
Warwick Pride are proud to be running the second year of the Gender Expression Fund: a community-led fund that transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming students can use to buy up to £50 of gender-affirming items.
Connecting estranged students with support and community, Solo educates supporters, researches estranged students' experiences, and improves access to support, with the ultimate goal of improving estranged students' experiences at Warwick.
Chosen names on ID cards
University ID cards at Warwick will now use chosen name data instead of legal name data. You can request a reprint of your card if you'd like a new one which reflects this change. All future cards issued will use chosen names as standard.
