Gender Inclusive Housing

Syracuse University offers gender inclusive housing for undergraduate residents.  This means you may select a roommate(s) of any gender as your roommate to live in our South Campus 2 & 3 bedroom apartments.

GENDER INCLUSIVE HOUSING POLICY

  • This is offered as a choice for students participating in our Room Selection process.
  • Matching roommate choices between students of any gender and the assigned housing acknowledge that all students agree to abide by the gender inclusive housing policies as stated below.

GENDER INCLUSIVE 3-BEDROOM APARTMENT

If, after selecting or assigned an apartment a student cancels their housing or moves from the assigned apartment, the remaining students have the following options:

  1. If remaining occupants are of the same gender:
    • Remaining occupants (mutually) may identify a friend of the same gender to fill the vacancy.  The remaining occupants must communicate with the Housing Office the identity of their friend in a timely manner.  The timetable for this will vary, dependent upon the time of year and housing priorities in effect at that time.
    • Remaining occupants (mutually) may identify a friend of another gender, who acknowledges and agrees to abide by the gender inclusive housing policies as stated here, to fill the vacancy.  The remaining occupants must communicate with the Housing Office the identity of their friend in a suitable deadline.  The deadline for this will vary, dependent upon the time of year and housing priorities in effect at that time.
    • The Housing Office will reassign the vacancy to a student of the identified gender as the remaining occupants.
  2. If the remaining occupants are not of the same gender:
    • Remaining occupants may be required to relocate to a 2-bedroom apartment, at the 2-bedroom apartment rate, dependent upon availability.
    • Remaining occupants (mutually) may identify a friend, who acknowledges and agrees to abide by the gender inclusive housing policies as stated here, to fill the vacancy.  The remaining occupants must communicate with the Housing Office the identity of their friend in a suitable deadline.  The deadline for this will vary, dependent upon the time of year and housing priorities in effect at that time.
