Gender Inclusive Housing

Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) is a housing option in which two or more students share a multiple occupancy space, suite or apartment regardless of the students' sex, gender identity or gender expression. In other words, this option allows for students of any gender identity to live together regardless of sex assigned at birth.

Gender Inclusive Housing is available to Stony Brook students who are 18 years of age or older by the start of the semester in which they matriculate. GIH can be selected as a living option when students go through the room selection process on the housing portal. Spaces are available across campus and support all floor plan options: corridor, suite-style, apartment. All students that live in GIH must sign a Gender Inclusive Housing Contract, much like the Residential Programs Roommate Agreement, which outlines the expectations of the community.
