Housing, Residential Life & Auxiliaries (HRLA) is committed to helping all students find a comfortable living environment, as such, we are committed to accommodating the housing needs of the transgender, genderqueer and gender-nonconforming students. Gender-inclusive rooms and bathrooms are located on the first floor of Pacific Building at Beachside Residential College. All residents are welcome to use the bathrooms and live in a room that matches their gender identity. The primary purpose for gender-inclusive housing is to provide support to students who need or request accommodations due to gender identity/expression. Transgender, genderqueer and gender-nonconforming students may engage in an interactive process with HRLA’s Assistant Director(s) to find a space that best meets their needs. If two students opt to live together, regardless of gender differences, we will honor that request through our gender-inclusive spaces. In order to provide support for the needs of transgender, genderqueer and gender nonconforming students, Student Housing welcomes potential and current residents to contact HRLA.
