gender-Inclusive Housing

The Department of Residential Life and Housing (RLH) and Campus Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) at the University of Redlands seek to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities; one not limited by the traditional understanding of gender as only male and female. Gender-inclusive housing allows individuals to live together regardless of biological sex. Offering gender-inclusive housing supports creating a more inclusive campus climate and community.

Gender-inclusive housing means students from all gender identities and expressions may choose to live together. Thus, gender-inclusive housing is for anyone who wants to live with people with whom they feel comfortable - no matter their gender. Students who elect this option must be open to living with a person of any gender.

The following values guide gender-inclusive housing assignments:

  • Respect for and affirmation of the student's gender identity and/or expression

  • Prioritized attention to the student's physical safety and emotional health

  • Enhancing the student's opportunity for success at the University of Redlands by finding the best match between the student's needs and the options available
