All gender housing is available for students who wish to reside together within a floor, room, or suite regardless of their gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
DeGroat Hall (double rooms in a corridor) and West Campus Apartments (four single bedrooms in an apartment.)
Any new or returning student who wants to, or is open to living with another student regardless of gender. This includes if you get along better with members of another gender, you have friends who want to live together regardless of gender, or if you are a transgender student who wants to live in a comfortable and safe environment.
Co-ed assumes there are two genders: male and female. All of our residence halls are co-ed by floor, wing or room. However, co-ed does not allow a person who does not identify as their biological sex or those who are transgender a comfortable space to live. All gender assumes there is a gender spectrum and allows for you to live with whoever you want regardless of gender, gender identity or gender expression.
We encourage you to have an open dialogue with your family so they can be supportive of your decision. We can only consider housing changes at the request of you, the student.
In all gender housing a double room could have two male students, two female students, one male student and one female student, one male or female student and one transgender student, or two transgender students. We want everyone who chooses to live here to understand that if your roommate leaves, your new roommate could be a person of any gender, gender expression or gender identity.
All gender housing is not intended for romantic couples. We do respect the privacy of our students, so our procedures to live in an all gender area do not require you to disclose the reason for your roommate request. Couples, heterosexual or LGBT, are discouraged from living together.
We will only assign you to an all gender living area if you request it. New students: please refer to the housing preference form instructions Web page for more information. Returning students: please follow instructions provided to you on the room selection process (RSP) Web page.
Yes. you must sign the All Gender Housing Living Agreement by the deadline indicated for your housing process.
The ultimate goal for Gender Inclusive Housing is to develop a community for all students who choose to participate to feel accepted and supported. This floor is open to students, regardless of gender identity and as space is available, who would like to grow not only as individuals, but as student leaders and active citizens in society.
Please agree to these statements if you intend to participate in our Gender Inclusive Housing option. Remember that by signing this form you agree to adhere to the expectations of this community, and you will actively work towards fostering this inclusive living environment for the other individuals involved.
