Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) Community

The University of Kansas is pleased to offer a Gender Inclusive Housing Community to better support our students. Located in Lewis Hall, this option allows students to share a suite with fellow students regardless of their sex, gender identity, or gender expression.

Students who choose to live in Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) commit to abide by the community agreement and to support a welcoming community for all individuals, which includes embracing the diverse array of sexualities, gender identities, and gender expressions that may be present in the community.

Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) Agreement
As a student selecting to live in Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH), I agree to the following terms and conditions:
  1. I understand that: (a) Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) is defined as a housing option in which two or more students share a multiple-occupancy apartment or suite, in mutual agreement, regardless of the students’ gender identity, gender expression and/or sexual orientation; (b) that the intent of this agreement is to give students the option to reside with another person of a different gender in order to provide a welcoming living environment; and (c) allows/encourages students who may be in the process of discovering their gender identity, who may not wish to identify themselves by any gender, and/or students who feel more comfortable with a roommate of a different gender the option to find a more compatible roommate and living situation within this community.
  2. I understand that if I exhibit behavior that is contrary to the spirit of this agreement, I may be relocated to a different housing assignment on campus.
  3. I understand that all attempts will be made to accommodate students wishing to live in gender inclusive housing; however, assignment will be based upon availability.
  4. I understand that students who do not identify roommate preference(s) will be assigned roommates who have also selected to live in a gender inclusive housing.
  5. I understand that I may request a room change. All assignment procedures, deadlines, and associated charges (as stated in the Housing Contract) apply to these requests. Room change requests will be contingent on availability.
  6. I understand it is my choice whether or not to communicate with parents or family members about the decision to live in a gender inclusive housing option. KU Student Housing will not share this information with anyone other than the student contracted in the gender inclusive accommodation.
  7. I understand that my roommates and others in this community may not wish for others to know about their participation in gender inclusive housing, and that I am expected to maintain the privacy of those in this community.
  8. I understand that only those who live in gender inclusive housing at KU have signed this agreement and have chosen to adhere to this policy and agreement.
