What is 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.
  • Choosing to live in Gender Inclusive Housing means that residents will have roommates and/or suitemates of any gender identities.
  • Residents of Gender Inclusive Housing are committed to creating and affirming a bias-free environment for everyone living in this community.
  • If you have an interest in Gender Inclusive Housing, you can sign up for this in the housing portal during published time frames . You will see a tab along the top of your housing portal labeled GIH. 
  • Once that process is live, please review all information prior to submitting it. Once submitted you have signed up to live in this community for the academic year. You will not be able to room change or room swap into gender-based male or female housing.
  • New Spring 2022 Students will be able to sign up and see the GIH tab in the housing portal from December 1 until January 3. After January 3 at 5pm, sign-up is closed for the 21-22 academic year.

How do I go about cancelling my application and will I receive any of my deposit back?

If you no longer need on-campus housing, students can submit their cancellation request in the housing portal. You should see a link on the main page in regards to a cancellation request. Please see related information below in regards to financial liability with cancellation requests:

Cancelation requests must be made prior to moving into your assignment. Once you have moved in you are financially liable for the remainder of your agreement even if you move out. Please see our financial liability website for full details.

If you cancel prior to January 15 and have not checked in, you can receive $100 of your deposit back. If you have not checked in and cancel after January 23, you will be considered a late cancellation and be billed until the first Wednesday of the semester or the date you request a late cancellation, whichever is later.

Any resident who cancels their housing agreement loses eligibility for future housing. Choosing to live off campus requires the student to join a waiting list if they are interested in housing for a future semester or year. We cannot predict when or guarantee if students will get on campus housing by joining the waitlist. See full details on our financial liability website .
