University Housing at the University of Central Missouri is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students residing in the residence halls. Part of the commitment is providing gender inclusive housing options for students who identify as transgender, gender-nonconforming, and their allies. Gender Inclusive Housing furthers UCM’s non-discrimination policy in regards to gender identity and/or expression.
UCM Housing understands and recognizes that same-sex room assignments are not ideal for all students. Students who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming may feel more comfortable living with another sex or gender, or do not wish to prescribe to gender norms. UCM Housing provides GIH to have an environment that is welcoming and embracing of all gender identities as well as those students serving as allies to the LGBTQI Community. Through this process, students who opt in to GIH are permitted to have roommates and suitemates regardless of gender identity.
Assignments will be made based on student preference and availability.
