The 2023-2024 Gender Inclusive Housing Application is now open!

Restrooms in these spaces are designated all-gender. This is an intentional community for those who promote inclusiveness regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

The application is due March 28, 2023, and you can apply by submitting the following form: 2023-2024 Gender Inclusive Housing Application Form.
