Additional Housing Options:

Gender Inclusive Housing 

Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) is a housing option in which two or more students share a bedroom, suite and/or apartment regardless of the students' sex, gender identity or gender expression. In other words, this option allows for students of any gender identity to live together regardless of sex assigned at birth.

Gender Inclusive Housing is not recommended or intended for: living with significant others, only specific people, and/or to get to a specific location within housing. Choosing to live in GIH is an agreement for the whole year, and you will not be permitted to room change to a non-GIH space after being approved. Similarly, if you do not choose to live in GIH for the upcoming year, you will only be able to choose rooms based on the gender identity listed on your student record. We strive to balance the clustering of GIH suites next to each other while providing options across all housing inventory room types at a similar availability to those in gender-designated housing. Gender Inclusive Housing represents about 125 bed spaces across our residential communities, with approximately 2% of continuing and new transfer students participating in GIH. Appeals to leave or join GIH mid-year can be made in the housing portal. If you are interested, you will need to review and agree to all items below in your housing application before being approved for Gender Inclusive Housing.

  • I understand choosing to live in Gender Inclusive Housing means I will have roommates and/or suitemates of any gender identities.
  • I understand that the only options I will have access to are gender inclusive spaces, and that I am committed to living in GIH for the academic year.   
  • I understand that only people who have been approved for the Gender Inclusive Housing environment will be allowed to move into my space.   
  • I understand that if I live in GIH with the plan to live with a specific person, and that person leaves the space, that the room will be filled by only individuals who are GIH approved.   
  • I affirm and feel comfortable living with LGBTQ* people, specifically trans and non-binary people.   
  • I understand my role in creating and affirming a bias free environment for everyone living in this community.
