Gender Inclusive Assignments (GIA)

GIA is a housing option outside of the Rainbow Community where two or more students share a multiple-occupancy space, in mutual agreement, regardless of the students’ sex, gender identity, and/or gender expression. Rates for Gender Inclusive Assignments are the same as other student rates.
