All Gender Housing

All residence room styles are open to all gender identities. Residents may be assigned to a room style that includes roommates (sharing an apartment, paired or double/triple).

Gender Identity Definitions

Cisgender: Often referred to as simply ‘Cis’, a cisgender person is someone whose gender identity is the same as their assigned sex at birth. For example, a cisgender woman is a woman who was assigned female at birth and now identifies as a woman.

Transgender: Often referred to as simply ‘Trans’, a transgender person is someone whose gender identity is different than the sex they were assigned at birth. For example, a transgender woman is a woman who was assigned male at birth but now identifies as a woman.

Non-Binary: A non-binary person is someone whose gender identity is neither male nor female, or a mix of the two. For example, a non-binary person might have been assigned male at birth but now identifies as genderqueer.

Two Spirit: An umbrella term that is culturally distinct to some First Nations/Indigenous people. The term may be used to describe a person’s gender identity, sexual orientation, spiritual identity, and/or societal role.
