Wake Forest University provides some gender-neutral housing options for all students who choose to live in mixed-sex living units. These living units may be apartments, suites, houses, or rooms in areas of residence halls with private bathrooms (toilet and shower areas).
During the process, students will be asked to complete an interest form (located in the Specialty Housing section of our Documents & Forms page). Students who request gender-neutral housing will then be contacted by a staff member in the Office of Residence Life and Housing to discuss the best way to accommodate their housing needs, based on assigned room selection log-on times. During the process, no student will be asked to disclose their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
Gender-neutral housing is not intended for students in a romantic relationship. Upon placement, students agree to the room assignment for the academic year with no option for room changes. Additionally, the Office of Residence Life and Housing may consolidate students in gender-neutral housing if the students cannot pull in a roommate and no other student is requesting gender-neutral housing at the time.
If you have questions about Gender Neutral Housing, please contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-758-5185.
