Available Fall 2020: As a part of Open Housing, Housing & Residential Life offers Gender-Inclusive Housing in 'cluster' communities that provide a safe and supportive living space for transgender, non-binary and LGBTQ students. "Cluster" communities are groups of rooms within a wing or floor in some dorms. Students have the opportunity to request assignment to a cluster community in their housing application starting in January. Assignment to a cluster community is based on availability.
New for Fall 2020: Students can indicate interest within the housing application in one or more areas. Interest areas will include Outdoor Adventures, Social Justice, and Sustainability. Residents of any building may select these groups without needing to reside in a specific dorm location.
