Gender Neutral Housing

Gender Neutral Housing allows students to be placed in housing without regard to gender. Students who request Gender Neutral Housing must comply with the following eligibility requirements and policies:

  • A student must be eligible for University housing.
  • A student must be 18 years of age by the official move-in date. Students under 18 must provide written parental consent in order to be considered.
  • Assignments will be made without regard to the gender of roommates. If no vacancies exist in Gender Neutral rooms, you will be assigned according to your gender in the Student Registration System.
Students are invited to contact the Housing Assignments Office to discuss options. If a vacancy exists in a gender neutral room, the following will occur to fill the empty bed:
  • Housing Assignments will place another student who has requested Gender Neutral Housing in the open bed.
  • If a roommate cannot be identified, Housing Assignments may require remaining residents to relocate to another room; room type match not guaranteed.
  • Housing Assignments, at its discretion, will allow the students occupying the room to pay for the additional space if all agree to the additional charge.

Medical Accommodations

Student Disabilities Services, Student Health Services, and Residential Services work closely together to review requests and identify appropriate and available housing. For information on applying for a medical accommodation please click here. Students with service and assistance animals should follow this same process.

Please note that residents who receive an accommodation for an assistance or service animal will be presented with additional policies and procedures regarding the care and behavior of their animal. Back to top

Room Changes

Residential Services coordinates three room change processes, typically in October, November and January. Click here for application information and dates. Residents experiencing roommate problems may contact their GA, RA, House Dean, or Manager for Sansom Place for assistance with problem resolution at any time. All room changes must be authorized by the Housing Assignments Office. Residents making unauthorized changes will be subject to disciplinary action. Be aware that if a room change is made, rent will be adjusted to reflect the new room rate. Residents should pick up new keys and return old keys at the Information Center on the specified room change date. Picking up your keys early or returning keys late will result in additional rent charges. Note that partially occupied rooms are not cleaned prior to a student moving in. Back to top
