Preferred Name
UAFS recognizes that members of the campus community may not use the name that they were assigned at birth as it does not reflect their identity. UAFS seeks to promote the comfort and safety of students who wish to be identified by a name other than their legal name by displaying a student's preferred name on their Lions ID as well as in Banner, Blackboard, and Navigate. 
To submit a preferred name request, visit the Registrar's Office on the second floor of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center or submit a request via your UAFS email to the Registrar’s Office at Registrar@uafs.edu.
 
Single-Stall Restrooms 
UAFS has made an effort to include gender-inclusive facilities that align with individuals’ gender identity. UAFS recognizes the psychological and physical concerns that are associated with using restrooms that may not align with one’s gender identity. As such, UAFS has included facilities that accommodate the needs of all its community members. 
If you find that one of the restrooms on our map/list is labeled incorrectly, please contact the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. 

UAFS respects students of all faith traditions and supports opportunities for spiritual and faith exploration and commitment. The following specific resources are available presently. If your spiritual needs are not reflected, please contact us so we can connect you with relevant resources.
