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:

GMC offers one floor that is specifically designated as “gender neutral” and can accommodate nineteen students. Students of either gender, or those who do not identify, are permitted to select a roommate of their choice, regardless of gender. All floor members self-select to live on this floor. The RA of the gender neutral floor receives additional training in relevant topics such as identity development, gender issues, and GLBT trends. Prior to moving onto the gender neutral floor, GMC requires a parent and/or guardian to provide written consent to the room choice if the student is classified as a dependent.

Several other floors in the residence halls at GMC are co-ed, with all bathrooms on such floors also designated as co-ed. Traditional male and female floors are also offered, with all bathrooms on these floors designated as single-sex.
