Gender-Inclusive Housing

Gender-Inclusive Housing

UCR’s gender-inclusive housing options affirm the diversity and complexity of student gender identities and relationships by providing an opportunity to consenting students for roommate pairings and room assignments without regard to a student’s sex or gender identity.

The LGBT Resource Center is an excellent resource for support, education, and advocacy regarding gender identity/expression for the UCR community and beyond.

Residence Halls

UCR’s residence halls are both traditional and suite-style, and are home to all levels of undergraduate students, including 75% of UCR’s first year students.

Our traditional-style residence halls consist of long hallways with approximately 20 double- and triple-occupancy rooms lining both sides, along with three gender-inclusive restrooms with private toilet and shower rooms, and a community lounge.

Our suite-style residence halls are arranged in small pods of 3-4 double- and triple-occupancy rooms whose students share a single-occupancy bathroom and shower room, small living area, and kitchenette.

The Gender-Inclusive Housing Option is a community dedicated to same-gender, opposite-gender, and other gender-identity roommate pairings. Community options are located in our traditional-style Dundee Residence Hall and also our suite-style Pentland Hills Residence Halls.  Students living in the Gender-Inclusive Housing Option can enjoy all of the traditional social and educational programming offered by our Residential Life team to all residence hall students. However, no additional gender-inclusive programming is offered on this hall.

Stonewall Hall is a dedicated community that celebrates and welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual students, and their allies. Stonewall Hall is located in our suite-style Pentland Hills Residence Hall and includes intentional, community-specific programming by our Residential Life team, campus departments, and student groups.

You can request to live in the Gender-Inclusive Housing Option or Stonewall Hall by selecting either option while completing your Residence Hall Contract.

Campus Apartments

Transfer and Continuing UCR students (second-year and beyond) are eligible to live in one of UCR’s six different campus apartment communities, including Bannockburn Village, Falkirk, Glen Mor, North District, Stonehaven, or The Plaza. Gender-inclusive apartment assignments can be arranged upon request for any consenting roommate pairings* regardless of sex or gender-identity.

You can request a gender-inclusive housing assignment in our UCR campus apartments by making a note in the Special Considerations question on your Campus Apartment Application

*Please note that all campus apartment roommates must consent to a gender-inclusive housing assignment and the consenting roommate group must fill the requested apartment to full capacity (e.g. a 2-bedroom apartment would need to have a minimum of one student per bedroom).
