Is there a way to identify as LGBTQ as in incoming freshman to ensure that I am matched with accepting roommates?

Yes, you are able to identify as LGBTQ in your housing application, but there is no guarantee that you will be matched with an accepting roommate. There have been instances of BGLTQ-identified students being matched with non-accepting roommates. Making explicitly known any and all qualities of the people you would like to live with should be detailed in your first-year housing questionnaire, and the Freshman Dean's Office will do its best to match you appropriately. If you are matched with a non-accepting roommate, please raise your concern to your proctor and/or your resident dean to move forward with the situation.
