THE DAILY FLYER NEEDS YOUR HELP squigz begs of you NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE! Gender Neutral Housing Application From the Office of Residential Life In response to a joint proposal passed by ASPLU and the Residence Hall Association, Residential Life is creating two residence hall mixed gender wings with gender neutral bathrooms as a pilot program for the 2013 – 2014 academic year. These bathrooms will be open to all users, regardless of biological sex or gender identity. Private stalls, with partitions going nearly to the floor and ceiling, will enclose toilets, urinals, and showers with individual changing areas. These wings will be designated as mixed gender, allowing for rooms designated for male residents and rooms designated for female residents on the same wing. Gender neutral rooms will be an option on these wings for students for whom biological sex does not match gender identity. For additional information and applications, go to the Housing Sign Up page on the Residential Life website. (http://www.plu.edu/residential-life/housing-applications/housing-sign-up-process-20132014/home.php) WHY RHA SUPPORTS GENDER NEUTRAL HOUSING: We believe that ALL Students deserve a space to live on campus that is safe, affirming, and inclusive We support our LGBTQ friends who might not feel comfortable in traditional housing We surveyed students back in October of 2012, and they overwhelmingly supported increasing the number of mixed-gender wings on campus We heard consistent support from students regarding these changes through open Residence Hall Congress sessions twice this year We believe in the on-campus experience and want every student to have a chance to live it!
