Residential Education provides “gender-open housing” meaning that two or more students may mutually agree to share a multiple-occupancy residence hall room, suite, apartment or townhouse unit, regardless of a student’s sex or gender. The purpose of this policy is to provide students an increased choice in selecting roommates based on whom they feel the most comfortable and safe with, regardless of gender, to support their various living needs. This gender-open housing policy supports the university’s non-discrimination policy with respect to gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. To learn more about this policy, please visit the gender open housing policy.
Please note that within a gender-open community, some parts of the hall may have mixed-gendered rooms among traditionally-gendered and gender-open rooms. In traditional-gender communities, neighboring rooms will all be traditionally-gendered (students of the same gender in a living space).
Only students who explicitly indicate on this form and via additional communication will be placed into a gender-open living arrangement.
Please indicate your interest in living in a gender-open room/community below. Residential Education will personally contact all students who indicate interest via the provided phone number or email address to discuss their individual needs.
