Does the institution offer housing options to accomodate the special needs of transgender and transitioning students (either as a matter of policy or as standard practice)?:

A brief description of the program, policy, or practice:

Yes, Bryant University offers housing options to accommodate the needs of transgender and transitioning students.

The Office of Residence Life has established a pilot program for the Fall 2012, offering the option of Gender neutral housing in Hall 17. Gender neutral housing is a housing option that allows students to room with other students of any gender. A male student and a female student can jointly choose to live together in a double room within a suite. This housing choice provides an option for transgender students, gay or bisexual students, students who feel uncomfortable rooming with members of the same sex, intersexed students who do not wish to be identified by any sex and students who feel they would be more compatible with a roommate of a different gender. The gender neutral housing option reflects Bryant’s commitment to fostering an inclusive living and learning environment
