Harvard College is pleased to announce that gender inclusive housing is available as an option for first-year students effective in the fall of 2018. Gender inclusive housing is already an option for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. In alignment with the Mission of the College, gender inclusive housing acknowledges and reaffirms gender diversity as an important aspect of our campus life by offering a pathway to housing that is not predicated on the notion that there are essential characteristics that render single-gender housing necessary.
Gender inclusive housing gives students the option of living together in a room or suite irrespective of their gender identity. This option is available to all students at the College, though the process differs for first-year students and for sophomores, juniors, and seniors living in the houses.
