Gender-inclusive housing (GIH) is available to incoming and current students during the room selection process. GIH allows undergraduate students of any gender the option of living with other students regardless of their gender. GIH environments are designated as particularly comfortable living spaces on campus for students who identify as transgender, gender non-conforming, gender questioning, lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex, queer, and allies. As an opt-in policy, GIH is voluntary and no student will be assigned to GIH unless it is requested. GIH promotes self-determination by allowing students the choice to make decisions regarding their own needs. Students may pull in eligible roommate(s), select a single within an apartment/suite, or request to be assigned a roommate.
At Tulane University, we value diversity and strive to create an inclusive environment where all students have a sense of safety and belonging. As such, Housing & Residential Life (HRL) believes that all students should have access to safe and welcoming residential environments. GIH is designated as a particularly comfortable home on campus for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning and their allies (LGBTIQA).
Gender-inclusive housing is available to all students.
As is the case with sex-segregated housing, the GIH option is not intended nor recommended for romantic/sexual couples. HRL discourages students of any gender from living in units with students with whom they have a romantic/sexual relationship.
Students may apply online through the main application process.
If you experience a problem with your living situation that you believe is a result of your sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, immediately talk to your resident advisor, area director, or another staff member. We ask that you also report bias-related incidents(confidentially, if you choose) to the Office for Institutional Equity (OIE) and to the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD). To submit an online report of an incident of bias, misconduct, or discrimination, please click here. If you would like it to remain confidential, please leave out identifying information. However, the more information we have the more we are capable of addressing it.
