Gender Inclusive Assignments

What are Gender Inclusive Assignments?

A gender inclusive assignment (GIA) is defined as a housing option in which two or more students share a multiple-occupancy space, in mutual agreement, regardless of the students’ sex, gender identity, and/or gender expression.

This assignment is not within the Rainbow Community.

Rates for Gender Inclusive Assignments are the same as other student rates.
