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)?:
Yes

A brief description of the program, policy, or practice:

We are committed to offering gender-neutral housing options for both returning upper-class students and first-year students. The housing option is open to any students who are committed to the purpose of Gender Neutral Housing and feel it meets their own needs.
Gender-neutral housing for returning students is typically housed within a suite-style setup for 12-15 students, and first-year students desiring to live in a gender-neutral environment are housed on a floor of a traditional residence hall. The housing option is open to any students who are committed to the purpose of Gender Neutral Housing and feel it meets their own needs.

Gender Neutral housing is an environment where student housing is not restricted to traditional limitations of the gender binary. Students may choose a roommate of any gender, and will not be asked by The Office of Residence Life to identify their own gender during the selection process. Students who do not have a roommate will be assigned a roommate without the consideration of gender. The housing option is open to any students who are committed to the purpose of Gender Neutral Housing and feel it meets their own needs.
