All Gender & Open Housing

In our on-going mission to provide housing that meets the diverse needs and interests of ALL students, we are proud to offer All Gender & Open Housing in designated spaces in Summit Hall. All Gender & Open Housing provides students a community where roommates and/or suitemates of any gender can live together in a more integrated environment. All Gender & Open Housing is also reflective of the housing choices/opportunities available to students off-campus where they can select their roommate of choice. Some examples of students who may be interested in All Gender & Open Housing include but are not limited to:

  • Students with a disability wishing to room with a student attendant of the opposite sex
  • Cultural accommodations, such as living with a student relative or guardian
  • Students who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming requesting a roommate based on comfort and support rather than biological sex (i.e. friend or ally)
  • Depressed/anxious student requesting a non-binary gender roommate for support
  • Siblings, cousins, and childhood friends of varying gender identities
  • Students seeking a mixed gender housing option
