PAE-T2-1: Gender Neutral Housing
Office of Sustainability
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:
Residence Services has been accommodating gender neutral housing requests on a regular basis. Traditional residence halls contain co-ed floors with gender neutral bathrooms and students can be placed in single person rooms as well. For students to be able to live with someone of the opposite gender or if they have any special needs, they are asked to contact Residence Services and can be accommodated upon requests. On an average, we get 20-30 gender neutral requests every year.
