Gender Inclusive Housing

Housing Room Assignments & Confidentiality Policy

  • All HSU Housing & Residence Life halls, including Living Learning Communities and Theme & Cultural Communities, are open and inclusive to students of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs. As a department, we believe our residents should have equitable access to the learning opportunities we offer.
  • When you are enroll with HSU, you will indicate your gender with your Admission paperwork. That gender indicator will carry over into your housing application. If you wish to change your listed gender with Housing & Residence Life, please email
  • Roommate pairings are based on roommate preferences indicated in the housing application. Preferences for a gender inclusive room are a priority during roommate pairings. HSU prioritizes preference for gender inclusive housing over the other housing preferences.
  • A selection of gender inclusive rooms in each housing community are available for residents who may be transgender, questioning, transitioning gender or gender non-binary, or prefer to have a transgender, questioning, transitioning gender or gender non-binary roommate.
