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:

Spectrum is designed to provide a supportive place for all who identify along the continuum of sexuality, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer people, and their allies. It also provides a place to focus on issues and explore the depth of the human condition as it relates to sexual orientation in an academic setting.

The Spectrum living area has gender neutral bathrooms. A gender neutral bathroom facility is a physical reminder that the current gender categories are inadequate and not fully inclusive in today's culture where we acknowledge a continuum of persons who identify outside the traditional binary gender scale.
