Gender Inclusive Community
The Gender Inclusive Community is a mixed gender housing option designed to better support the safety, security, and community needs of all students. This option allows residents to choose to live in a community that is supportive of all students, including those who may identify as transgender or genderqueer, are more comfortable living with someone of a different sex or gender, do not prescribe to normative gender classifications, or allies. This floor will offer an environment that acknowledges the importance of identity and allows students to live on a floor where room placement and roommate assignments are made regardless of sex or gender identity/expression. The communal bathroom and shower room with individual stalls will be used by all residents of the floor regardless of sex or gender. Students must opt in to this community, and those who are placed here must agree to support a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for all students, regardless of sexuality, gender identity/expression, or other identities. No student will be placed in this community unless they specifically request this housing option.
For more information review the Gender Inclusive Housing FAQs.
Programs & Events
The Gender Inclusive Community will have an RA hosting community building events and educational programs on an array of topics. While some programs and events may directly relate to this community being gender inclusive, there will also be a wide array of programs and events aimed at the general transitional needs of college students.
The Gender Inclusive Community is located in one wing of a floor in Miller Hall.
