Gender Inclusive Housing Assignment is a housing option that allows students to room with other students regardless of gender identity or gender expression. Housing Assignments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Students who choose gender-inclusive housing assignments support and embrace the diversity of all gender identities and expressions.
