Gender Inclusive Housing

Gender Inclusive Housing was established in 2012 by the Department of Residential Life, and provides rooms across campus where students of all sexes and gender identities can choose to live together. This link will take you to their website to learn more about what we offer at UAlbany.

Transgender Students & Housing 

Transgender students should work with the Res Life LGBT Liaison to help them make the best decision about their housing opportunities. Trans* students may choose Gender Inclusive Housing or those students who wish to live in gendered housing in keeping with their gender identity may do so, regardless of assigned sex at birth. Please contact Karla Jaime Benitez with any questions and if you have not changed your gender credentials on your state identifications or birth records.

Harassment in Campus Housing

If you experience homophobic, transphobic, biphobic or heterosexist bias or intimidation please contact our LGBT* liaison, the GSRC coordinator or UPD. You may also report anonymously here.

The University at Albany aspires to create a safe and welcoming environment for all students on campus. If you have any questions or concerns about your housing situation please contact our LGBT* liaison Karla Jaime Benitez.
