Gender Neutral Housing

Residence Life strives to provide a safe, inclusive, comfortable, and supportive living environment for all students residing in university-owned and university-operated housing. We offer the option of gender-neutral housing for students who, because of gender identity or gender expression, prefer this option. We work with students who identify as gender non-conforming* or transgender* in choosing the housing option that best meets their needs and allow these students the ability to choose a roommate of any gender.

If a student is in need of a gender-neutral room assignment, our team will work with you in a personal and confidential manner to discuss the options available to you and assist you in identifying the option that best fits with your preferences and needs. It is important to connect with us early in the process so that we may provide you with the widest range of housing options.

To discuss your interest and the available options, please contact one of our team members:

Available Housing Options include:

  • A single or double room with a private bath
  • A single or double occupancy apartment

Gender non-conforming is a term for individuals whose gender expression is different from social expectations related to gender.

Gender expression is the external manifestation of one’s gender identity, usually expressed through “masculine”, “feminine”, or gender variant behavior, clothing, haircut, voice, or body characteristics.

Transgender is a term for people whose gender identity, expression, or behavior is different from those typically associated with their assigned sex at birth, including but not limited to transsexuals, cross-dressers, androgynous people, genderqueers, and gender non-conforming people.
