If you are a student and are living in, or plan to live in, Gallaudet University housing, we recognize that you may have concerns about your housing options, housemates/roommates, and safety. Residence Life and Housing and the LGBTQA Resource Center are committed to identifying and following through with safe and appropriate housing for all students living on campus, and will address individual needs on a case by case basis.
If you identify as transgender, non-binary, or gender non-conforming and want to talk about specific housing options, needs, or concerns, such as a single room because of medical needs or assistance in finding a trans-friendly roommate, you must still abide by housing application deadlines and preferably notify the Housing Operations Manager in the Office of Residence Life and Housing as soon as you know that you want to request a specific accommodation. The LGBTQA Resource Center Coordinator can also assist in facilitating and supporting your conversations with staff of Residence Life and Housing.
While you are not required to seek housing accommodations, you are encouraged to do so if you have concerns about facing hostility or harassment otherwise.
