Gender-Inclusive Housing (GIH) is designed to provide a supportive place for students of any gender identity to live on campus where they can feel safe, comfortable, and thrive. GIH allows students of any gender identity to room with someone they are comfortable with regardless of gender, legal sex, or sex assigned at birth (SAB). This is done knowing that many students identify with a gender different than their legal sex or SAB.

2022-23 GIH Process

Starting in the 2022-23 academic year, University Housing is offering students the option between living in same gender or gender inclusive rooms. Students can select their preference on their housing contracts.

Students signing up for gender inclusive rooms search for and/or are assigned a roommate and room regardless of gender. Gender-inclusive housing strives to maintain a welcome and inclusive environment and is available to students of any gender identity and allies to the LGBTQIA+ community.

For more information on gender inclusive housing for the 2022-23 academic year, please contact us at or 402-472-8988.

2021-22 GIH Process

Students interested in GIH on campus have a short, additional process to complete to ensure they have access to GIH spaces on campus.

  1. Fill out and submit the GIH Interest Form.
  2. Students will then be contacted by Matt Nelson to discuss individual needs and preferences for GIH.
  3. Upon completion of conversation, students will be given access to GIH housing options. When student’s room selection time occurs they will be able to select from the spaces available that align with their individual needs.

Throughout the GIH process staff will not request any unnecessary information and any information shared will be kept confidential.
