Housing and Residence Life is committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and supportive experience for students and to working with all students to meet their housing needs in an environment that promotes the dignity of all people.

To aid creating these experiences for students Housing and Residence Life offers Gender Affirming Housing as a voluntary opt – in program for all students and a Mixed Gender Housing option for returning students.

Gender Affirming Housing allows undergraduate students of any gender the option of living in the same room/suite/or apartment with other students regardless of their gender marker on file with Tulane University. GAH is designed to be a more inclusive home on campus for students who identify as transgender, nonbinary, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, intersex, queer, asexual, agender, questioning (LGBTQIA+), and their allies.

Mixed Gender Housing allows undergraduate students of any gender the option of living in the same room/suite/or apartment with other students regardless of their gender marker on file with Tulane University.

Students that do not opt in to either of these programs will be housed in General Housing. This type of housing allows undergraduate students of the same gender marker within the Tulane system the ability to live together. This is the default, if Mixed Gender or Gender Affirming Housing is not selected.

Opting in to the Gender Affirming Housing and Mixed Gender Housing has no additional costs and will be offered throughout campus and will include a range of room types and prices.
