Responsible Office – Department:
Effective Date of Policy:
August 17, 2022
The Office of Housing and Residence Life permits non-first-year students of any gender to room with one another in a campus apartment, provided those students keep separate bedrooms. The University will NOT assign students from opposite genders to the same apartment. Rather, those students who are interested in this living arrangement must request this option during housing sign-ups. All residents of the apartment must agree to the arrangement in writing and sign an additional “Gender Inclusive Housing” addendum.
Purpose of Policy
To create and maintain an equitable environment where students have the optimal opportunity to succeed academically, personally, and professionally and where any and all Daemen University Community members feel safe, valued, and respected.
This policy’s virtual location is in the Residential Living Policies section (Section 4) of the Student Handbook – https://www.daemen.edu/student-life/student-affairs/student-handbook/section-4-residential-living-policies.
