The University of Arizona Housing & Residential Life is committed to creating an inclusive campus housing environment for people of all genders and identities. They understand how much your living arrangements can affect your life on campus, and want to work with you to determine the best options for you.
In your housing application, you will be able to select your gender identity. If you select “Transgender/Self-identify,” you will be prompted to answer a few questions. These will help Housing to start a personal dialogue with you to help determine the best housing option for you.
Social Justice Theme Community
The Social Justice Theme Community is a space that celebrates and affirms the diverse backgrounds of all its residents. Whether ability, body size/appearance, gender identity and expression, nationality, political affiliation, sexual orientation, social class, race, religion/spirituality, or other identities, students are encouraged to bring their whole selves to Social Justice Theme Community. The community is a safe space in Pima Hall where students may discuss their differences and pluralistic identities without fear of slurs, attacks or discrimination. The community also offers the option of gender-inclusive roommate pairings, for those interested.
Open Housing is intended to create a comfortable living environment for transgender and gender non-conforming residents as well as any student who wants to live with someone of a different gender. More information can be found in the Open Housing section of the Housing website.
For additional information or to discuss these options in more detail, please contact Sherard Robbins, Housing Assistant Director of Social Justice, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-626-4855.
