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:

A transgender student looking for a supportive living arrangement in University Housing should contact the Central Housing Office. Because of limitations in available housing options, there is no guarantee that all of the student's preferences can be met, but we are committed to working with the student to find the best accommodations possible.

Housing assignments for transgender students are guided by the following values:

- Respect for and affirmation of the student’s gender identity and/or expression.
- Prioritized attention to the student’s physical safety and emotional health.
- Enhance the student’s opportunity for success at SIUE by finding the best match between the student’s needs and the options available.
