Gender Inclusive Housing 

Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) is a housing option in which two or more students share a multiple occupancy space, suite 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 (GIH) is available to Stony Brook students who are  matriculated students and who turn 18 years of age or older by the end of their first year in which they matriculate. GIH can be selected as a living option when students go through the  room selection process on the   housing portal. Spaces are available across campus and support all floor plan options: corridor, suite-style, apartment. Before selecting gender inclusive housing, please watch this video
