» Gender Inclusive Housing

Residence Life and First Year Experience (RLFYE) provides on-campus housing options, educational residential experiences, and off-campus housing resources to undergraduate and graduate students. As part of RLFYE’s commitment to developing and sustaining residential communities that are welcoming and inclusive, the department offers gender-inclusive housing options in all residential communities. 

At Chapman University, your roommate(s) and suitemate(s) (if applicable) share the same reported gender; however, residents next door, across the hall, or throughout the building may be of a different gender. All bathrooms are either private or are shared with your suite mates (a room next door joined by a shared bathroom). We do not have shared community bathrooms.

One of the ways that the Residence Life and First Year Experience supports students who identify as transgender, genderqueer, gender questioning, or otherwise outside the gender binary is through gender inclusive housing. As a part of our commitment to developing and sustaining residential communities that are welcoming and inclusive, gender inclusive housing options are offered in all residential communities for all students.
