Gender Inclusive Housing

Campus Living is actively working on updating the policy and language for our Gender Inclusive Housing Policy. We hope to launch our new policy sometime Summer 2021. 

Campus Living is committed to providing its students with the most comfortable living situation possible. For some students, a “traditional” roommate pairing system is not the most comfortable option. Our housing practices afford Gender Inclusive Housing to students of every sexuality or gender identity, as well as their allies, and other students who would feel more comfortable and safe in a living environment other than the traditional roommate pairings.

Pioneered several years ago by students and staff, Lewis & Clark’s Gender Inclusive Housing policy is still evolving. Please read on to learn more about Gender Inclusive Housing and find out if it is right for you.
