PAE-T2-1: Gender Neutral Housing
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:
Housing and Residence Life at UNCG offers private rooms for students with special needs, including transgender/ transitioning students. Students who are transgender or who may be transitioning are able to now indicate their particular needs on the Special Request for Housing Accommodation application form. Students apply for this option on-line, and those with gender identity/expression concerns meet with the Senior Assistant Director of Housing in charge of room assignments. This was vetted through University Counsel, who suggested that each situation be treated individually and that Housing staff work with the students to provide the best choice possible in terms of a comfortable living environment. UNCG has several options available to transgender/transitioning students,ranging from rooms with private bathrooms to mixed-gender apartment
