Student Handbook

Gender Neutral Housing Policy

Alma College requires same-sex housing assignments within the individual rooms of all campus housing units. The college recognizes, however, there are circumstances in which it would be appropriate to consider requests for opposite-sex and/or mixed-gender room assignments. Thus, the Student Life Office may permit opposite-sex and/or mixed-gender room assignments in certain circumstances to accommodate students with a gender-based need. In all cases of gender neutral housing, all occupants must voluntarily agree to the room assignments.

Requests for opposite-sex and/or mixed-gender room assignments must be submitted to the Director of Campus Life in writing. Requests will be addressed and managed by a committee appointed by the Director of Campus Life, and will take into account all circumstances, including personal considerations and space constraints.
