University Residences provides Gender-Inclusive Housing as an option for students wanting a room assignment that is not based on gender. Gender-Inclusive Housing is intended to provide a supportive living environment for students whose gender identity and/or gender expression does not conform to the gender binary, and for LGBTQ+ students and allies more broadly. In Gender-Inclusive Housing, room assignments are not based on residents’ genders.
The locations of Gender-Inclusive Housing vary depending on demand for this housing option. Currently, Gender-Inclusive areas are provided within Buchanan Towers, Higginson, Highland, Fairhaven, and Birnam Wood.
