Inclusive Housing: Rainbow Floor
Inclusive Housing provides students with the flexibility to accommodate the needs of LGBTQ+/GSM (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer+/gender and sexual minorities) students, allies, and others for whom cultural or identity considerations require a new way of looking at room assignments, residence communities, and other housing issues. Students can choose to room with the person they are most comfortable living with, regardless of gender or sexuality. An inclusive community is one committed to social justice and based on respect for and celebration of people of diverse sexualities and genders.
How can I apply to this themed community?
In the Application Preferences section of the housing application, please select this community if you are interested in residing in it. Your next page will prompt a video that will provide an overview and outline the expectations of the Rainbow Community. The bottom of this page is an acknowledgement where you would choose yes as a means of acknowledging that you agree to abide by the themed community outlined expectations. Once you complete these steps, you will click save and continue to complete the rest of the housing application.
During Room Sign-Up, you will be assigned a timeslot for when you will be able to self-select your residence hall and room space. At that time, you will have access to select a room within that themed community if you would like to. If you complete your housing application after Room Sign-Up has already been completed, please contact our office at (920) 424-3212 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in selecting a room within the themed community.
If I am in a room currently, how can I join this themed community?
If you are already in a room, you will need to follow the room change process. Please reach out to your Resident Hall Director and make your request. The Resident Hall Director will assist you in contacting the housing office to start the process of changing your room. If your Resident Hall Director is unavailable, you can reach out to our office at (920) 424-3212 or via email at email@example.com for assistance in the room change process.
