Gender Neutral Housing (GNH) offered to returning students who are interested in rooming with a student of a different gender. This housing option will be available in Wing/Davis/Wilks on Redstone Campus. GNH will promote UVM’s goal and practice of equality, and make on-campus housing more desirable to students who may be seeking gender neutral housing options, including: 1) transgender students, 2) students in the process of discovering their gender identity, 3) gay, lesbian, or bisexual students, 4) students who feel uncomfortable rooming with members of the same gender, 5) intersex students, and 6) students who feel that they would cooperate better with a roommate of a different gender. The goal of GNH will be to create an environment that acknowledges, appreciates, and respects the diverse nature and needs of our student body.
SPECTRUM is a program offered at the UVM Living/Learning Center. The SPECTRUM program includes safe-space housing for students who identify with any sexual or gender identity, including but not limited to heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, transsexual, intersex, queer, questioning, or advocates of this community. Their mission is for participants to educate themselves and others about the multiplicities of sexual orientation, the possibilities of gender, and the ever-changing queer identities present on our campus, in our state, our country, and the world at large. For more information, call (802) 656-8367.
The Rainbow Cottages on North Campus consist of two small cottage style buildings, each with five single rooms, off street parking, a full shared kitchen, shared laundry facilities available in a separate building, and common living space. It is intended as a comfortable housing alternative for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning students and their advocates. All students residing there and their visitors are expected to be respectful of and sensitive to all of the identity groups included within the LGBTQA community.
