University: Turnin, Double Student ID for Transexual Students

Agenzia Giornalistica Italia

Turin – At the moment, there are four Turinese students who are using a double student identity card with both names until their request for a change of sex is accepted in court. In a press conference, it was explained that “it is a case which is almost unique in Italy and among few others in Europe. It is a chance to live through university in accordance to the particular personal moment one is experiencing.” According to the University of Turin’s student regulations, it is therefore possible “to release a new student identification card bearing the name chosen by the student to students who are waiting for their sex change request to be accepted by the court and for the subsequent change in the Registration Office, upon the presentation of the appropriate self-certification and the submission of the previous student ID.”
