Gender Neutral Housing
LC State Residence Life seeks to provide a living environment welcoming for all students of all gender identities. To help facilitate this, we have set aside space in our suite style housing for students who are interested in gender neutral housing.
What is gender neutral housing?
As we strive to create a welcoming and safe residential experience, offering gender neutral housing both accommodates and respects the complexities of gender identity. Knowing that traditional, same-sex room assignments are not always comfortable and/or appropriate for all students, we found gender neutral housing to be more welcoming for all of our students.
Is gender neutral housing just for LGBTQI+ students??
Gender neutral housing is not just for LGBTQI+; it is for anyone who wants to live with people with whom they feel comfortable - no matter their gender. Students who elect this option must be open to living with a person of any gender or gender identity. Students are interested in gender neutral housing for a variety of reasons. It is our hope that you make the best decision for you.
Both new and returning students are welcome to opt into gender neutral housing when filling out your housing application. We do strongly advise students NOT to live in a room with a partner or significant other. If you are wanting to live with a significant other, we strongly suggest looking at an off-campus apartment as a housing option.
What if a student does not want to live in gender neutral housing?
A student must identify on their application that they are interested in gender neutral housing in order to be considered. Students who do not identify an interest will not be considered and will remain eligible for single gender housing assignments.
