The Office of Residence Life and Housing
BSU has three policies designed to provide a safe and inclusive living environment for transgender and nonbinary students.
- Housing assignments based on gender identity;
- Gender-free housing which permits students of different gender identities to share living quarters; and
- Housing for nonbinary students such that a certain number of beds and rooms will be set aside for students who are nonbinary either by gender identity or legal gender designation. This nonbinary designation is consistent with how male or female only spaces are reserved and assigned.
