Extra Information: Renaming Mendip 'Peopledip' will make UWE feel more trans and non-gender conforming inclusive. Living accommodations for students should not be gendered as this will make many students feel uncomfortable.

11:14pm on 10 Mar 18 Even the thought is Absolute Nonsense.. Education is needed to be more gender inclusive not name changing. Change peoples attitude, not a sign. I strongly believe that people who are transgender/transsexual can cope with reading a name with "Men" in it.. i personally have never read the word "Mendip" and even stopped to contemplate it.. also "Peopledip" sounds like a running joke.
