Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH)

Housing and Residence Life is committed to working with all students to meet their housing needs in an environment that values diversity and promotes the dignity of all people. Gender-Inclusive Housing (GIH) allows undergraduate students of any gender the option of living with other students regardless of their gender.  While all housing on campus is expected to be free of bias and discrimination, GIH was designed to be a particularly comfortable home on campus for students who identify as transgender, lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex, queer, and questioning and their allies (LGBTIQA).  Options include both single and double bedrooms. 

As an opt-in policy, GIH is voluntary and no student will be assigned to GIH unless it is requested. If you selected Gender-Inclusive Housing on your Housing Application and no longer wish to live in GIH, visit the Housing and Residence Life office in Irby or contact us at

Gender-Inclusive Housing is available to all students. There are no additional costs for GIH rooms. Gender-Inclusive Housing will be offered throughout campus and will include a range of prices.  


On your Housing Application, simply click on the box indicating that you are interested in living in Gender-Inclusive Housing. 


If you experience a problem with your living situation that you believe is a result of your sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, immediately talk to your resident advisor, resident director, or another staff member.  We ask that you also report bias-related incidents (confidentially, if you choose) to the Office for Institutional Equity (OIE) and to the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD).
