Trans Resources


Gender Inclusive Student Housing Option

BU offers gender inclusive housing on Northumberland Hall’s second floor and all upper campus apartments. This housing option enables transgender students to request a roommate of their choice regardless of gender identification, with restrooms designated either women-only or gender-neutral.

Housing preference forms provide students the ability to choose this option through the existing room selection process. Students who do not actively select this option will be consulted before being placed in these areas. Gender neutral housing offers an inclusive housing option for students who still desire a traditional residence hall experience. Residence Life staff implemented this option understanding the needs of gender identity in our campus community. Ongoing support is provided through both Residence Life and the LGBTQA Resource Center.
