Housing accommodations are not generally provided for academic-related needs, and allergen-free or quiet living environments are not guaranteed.
Gender-Based Consideration Request
Students who need housing considerations due to gender should complete the Gender-Based Housing Consideration Form on the Center for Diversity and Inclusion’s website. Considerations may include access to affirming bathrooms, gender-affirming roommates, and room type. Students who are only looking to room with differently gendered roommates can do so by electing into all-gender housing (see below), and do not need to fill out the Gender-Based Housing Considerations form.
We offer all-gender housing as an option to ensure AU's Residence Life is a supportive space for students of all gender identities ad expressions. All-gender housing allows students to reside with other students regardless of sex, gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
