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:
We have several options for students that are interested in living on campus. The easiest option for students that are at any stage in their transition process is selecting a single unit. There are several types of single units available, most being studio style apartments with private bathrooms. If the student wishes to live with a roommate, the housing and res life office will work with them to find a compatible roommate. If the student has someone in mind they would like to share a room with, they can select their own roommate. If they do not know anyone, we will try to find a roommate that has indicated that they are trans-friendly.
