Mixed-Gender Housing

Mixed-Gender Rooms

Published on November 27, 2017

As part of our Commitment to Diversity, we are pleased to offer both single-gender and mixed-gender rooms or suites as an option, enhancing flexibility so all students feel comfortable in the place they call home.

If a student chooses the "mixed-gender" option when completing the online Residence Placement Questionnaire, we will not consider their gender identity when placing them in a room or suite with other student(s). They will be matched with someone else based on their lifestyle preferences (tidiness, study habits, bedtime, etc). As a result, they may be assigned a roommate or suitemate(s) who identifies as the same gender, or with someone whose gender identity is different than theirs. Mixed-gender room(s) is an opt-in process, and accommodations will be available based on demand. For more information, read our Frequently Asked Questions.
