Frequently Asked Dining Questions

Residence Life launched a project group during Fall 2014 composed of interested staff members to investigated the concept of Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH). GIH was established Fall 2015 and after consultation with GIH residents, along with continued demand, has been renewed and expanded.

Currently, at least 148 public and private schools in the United States have GIH or a policy that supports this option. Research conducted with similar public institutions with Gender Inclusive Housing options indicated limited concerns regarding GIH implementation.

No increase in undesirable behavior (by students within or outside the community) was reported by any school with whom we communicated.
