All Gender Community

Purpose and Standards

All-Gender community aligns with Housing & Residential Education's (HRE) Diversity Statement and creates an LGBTQ+ community living environment for DU students of all orientations, gender identities and gender expressions--including LGBTQ+ allies. All-gender housing is a popular choice for students who seek roommate or suitemate groups outside of the traditionally gendered-structure and acknowledges that identities exist on a spectrum.  Each suite includes a single user gender-neutral restroom and the floor has a shared kitchen. Living in the community will engage students through community building, peer relationships, staff support, student identity development, campus resources, identity and programming opportunities that empower students to become agents of change. 

If students are interested in living in a space dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, please indicate on your housing application by clicking on Gender Inclusive Housing. You will also need to complete the All-Gender Community Application and agree to the community standards.

All Gender Community Standards

  1. Community members will model behavior that reflects a positive value and respect for gender as a non-binary social construct. Community members' actions and behaviors must reflect the values of the community and will also promote a brave, affirming, and inclusive environment for all students living in the community. Guests will also respect the values and standards of the All Gender community.
  2. Community members will have an openness and/or desire to develop their own understanding of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
  3. Community members will use inclusive and socially just language and the gender pronouns and preferred names of community members.
  4. Community members will honor the privacy of peers in the community.
