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 Open Housing in designated spaces in Summit Hall. Open Housing provides students a community where roommates and/or suitemates of any gender can live together in a more integrated environment. 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 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 (i.e. male/female siblings or twins)
  • Students seeking a mixed gender housing option
