Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH)

Gender inclusive housing banner 

The GIH initiative was created with the explicit goal of helping Transgender and Gender Variant students, as well as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Questioning students, experience a greater sense of safety and belonging in NAU’s residential communities. GIH provides a living environment where a student can room with any other student—regardless of sex, gender, gender identity/expression, or sexual orientation. 

Providing a supportive, inclusive living space is critical for developing a healthy place for students to learn, develop, and grow. Vibrant GIH communities will additionally advance student learning and greater appreciation for diversity for those students who live in the community and those who live in proximity.
