Gender-Neutral Student Housing
Transgender and Gender-Neutral Student Housing
The Department of Residence Services strives to provide housing accommodations that are comfortable, safe and that offer a dignified living experience to all the students we serve, including those students who need gender-neutral housing, or those who require accommodations that support transgender individuals.
Housing for these individuals — as with all individuals seeking on-campus accommodations — are offered based on: (1) their availability and (2) the student's compliance with published procedures and timetables for applications and contract renewals. Housing assignments are made on a case-by case basis, recognizing the variability of individual needs and preferences, as well as the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number.
Transgender individuals, or those who are transitioning to transgender status, who are requesting a roommate are encouraged to meet with Residence Services staff (the Associate Director of Residential Communities [ph.330-672-2520] and/or the Associate Director of Residence Services [ph. 330-672-1223]) to process this request.
The LGBTQ Center is a great resource for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and ally students.
