Gender-Expansive Housing

Gender Equity Hall

The Gender Equity Hall is a community for students who are committed to gender inclusion for LGBTQIA+ individuals. This UO residence hall is recommended for students who would feel more comfortable living in a space that does not conform to the gender binary of male or female. Residents in this community can choose to share a room with a student of any gender identity or biological sex.

You may sign up by indicating this preference on the University Housing application.
