Gender Neutral Housing

Housing & Residential Life is committed to working with all students to meet their housing needs in an environment that values diversity and promotes dignity of all people. In addition to other themed housing options, gender neutral housing is now available to upper-class students during the room selection process. First year students must contact Housing directly to be considered for Gender Neutral Housing. Cases will be evaluated on an individual basis.  This gives students the option to reside with another person of a different gender in order to provide a welcoming living environment.  We hope that students in the process of discovering their gender identity, who do not wish to identify themselves by gender, gay or bisexual students, and students who feel more comfortable with a roommate of a different gender will be able to find a more compatible roommate and living situation within this community.  Gender neutral housing is available in International Village, in semi-private suites. The configuration of suites consists of two single bedrooms with a private adjacent bathroom.  For more information about the Gender Neutral Housing LLC, please contact housing@neu.edu.
