The LGBTQIA+ Living Learning Community aims to provide a space for transgender, gender-diverse, gender-nonconforming, gender-queer, non-binary, and allies to live together on-campus. The purpose of the LLC provides living options for students who do not feel comfortable with the existing gender-binary housing options. The goal is to limit micro-aggressions based on gender and sexual identities and to increase resident sense of belonging and safety in On-Campus Housing. A Resident Assistant (RA) wil be assigned to oversee the community and regularly check in with residents to ensure that the space remains supportive and inclusive.
HOW DO I APPLY?
Interested students may opt into the LGBTQIA+ LLC when completing the On-Campus Housing online application. The On-Campus Housing online application typically goes live every October for the upcoming Academic Year.
WHERE DOES THE COMMUNITY RESIDE?
The LGBTQIA+ LLC can be housed in different single student housing buildings based on interest. Students may indicate their building preference when completing the On-Campus Housing online application. Living unit layouts differ based on building. However, both private and shared room options are available and bathroom areas include single stall toilets and showers with lockable doors in all buildings.
HOW ARE ROOMMATES PAIRED?
The community will only consist of residents who opt in on their application. Applicants can list their current gender identity/expression, the preferred gender identify/expression for their roommate (if in a shared room), and any other details that would be helpful in making roommate pairings.
OTHER OPTIONS FOR LGBTQIA+ LIVING
During the application process, students can self-select roommates that they would feel comfortable living with. If space is not available in the LGBTQIA+ LLC, Housing Staff will try to place interested students with applicants who indicated that they would be willing to be an “ally” to the LGBTQIA+ LLC.
