  • What does it mean for a community to be gender inclusive?

    Gender inclusive housing (GIH) communities focus on creating an inclusive environment where students can live in the same room with any student - regardless of sex, gender, gender identity/expression, or sexual orientation. This is one of the specialized living communities where participation is voluntary.
    Applicants must select GIH on housing application AND also select McCroskey Hall as their number 1 hall choice. The student will be contacted by Residence Life to ensure that the community will meet the needs of the student. The community is first come, first serve and there are limited spaces. A student cannot be put into the community without wanting to be placed there. Also, any student with a housing contract is eligible for GIH, including first years.
