Gender Equity Hall

Gender Equity Hall

A community for students who want to live with others who are committed to gender inclusion and equity.

It is created for students who would feel more comfortable living in a hall that does not conform to the gender binary of male or female. Residents in this community can choose to share a room with a student of any gender identity or biological sex.

Residents who choose this community will have varied understandings of gender, gender identities, and gender expressions.

You can sign up for this community by indicating this preference on the University Housing application in the Community section. Please call or e-mail us if you have questions.

While the Gender Equity Hall is primarily a residental community, University Housing also offers an LGBTQIA+ Scholars Academic Residential Community, which focuses on shared coursework, academics, and scholarship centered on LGBTQIA+ identities and studies. These communities are located in Carson Hall.

Both the Gender Equity Hall and the LGBTQIA+ Scholars hall will be options on the University Housing application under the Communities section. Often these communities are located in the same hall.
