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:
The housing facilities at CSU Channel Islands offers students options for both privacy and communal living, and as a result, we have the ideal setting to accommodate the special needs of transgendered and transitioning students. For lower division students, this means that they can request to either live with other students in a shared bedroom in a two bedroom suite, or completely private accommodations in our suite style living area. For upper division students, this means that a student can live in an apartment with other students, and still have a private bedroom. Our Residential Education staff has also, as a matter of practice, provided advising and roommate support to both the individual transgendered or transitioning student, as well as with the roommates of this student to encourage a supportive and educational living experience.
