Gender-Neutral Housing Again Making Headlines

Rutgers University is the latest school to decide to offer gender-neutral housing, but their circumstances are more significant: the decision probably has to do with the tragedy of Tyler Clementi, a gay Rutgers student who committed suicide a few months ago.

Students do not have to proclaim their sexual preference to request the gender-neutral housing option. Only 100 students (of 28,000) will be offered the option.

Vassar has offered gender-neutral housing since Spring 2009.
