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:
Gender Neutral Housing- Currently, the college does offer mixed gender housing in suites and apartments, and gender neutral bathrooms are identified in individual residence halls by the residents on a year-to-year basis. There are no options being offered for incoming students for the fall 2011. The Student Senate has developed a proposal that will be addressed and discussed by a subcommittee of the Enrollment and Student Life Committee. This subcommittee will discuss issues including community bathrooms and gender neutral housing by rooms rather than suites and apartments, but any implementation of this option for incoming students would likely not happen until at least Fall 2012.
