Environmental Sustainability Theme housing for upperclassmen is available in Hamilton Hall, Colonial Quad. Students interested in these areas should sign up during Special Interest Housing Sign Up.
Gender Inclusive Housing: Recognizing that single-gender housing may not be appropriate or comfortable for all students, Residential Life offers a limited number of rooms as Gender Inclusive Housing in both the residence halls and apartments on a space available basis. Students signing up for these areas will be permitted to have roommates and suitemates from across the gender spectrum. Gender Inclusive Housing will allow for an environment where student housing is not restricted by traditional limitations presented by our current system that is based on the gender binary. We believe that it is important that our housing policies evolve to meet the needs of all students and to create an inclusive, welcoming environment. Continuing students may elect Gender Inclusive Housing during their Residence Hall or Apartment sign-up.
