Gender-Inclusive Services at Eastern


Gender-Inclusive On-Campus Housing
Eastern Connecticut State University offers Gender-Inclusive Housing for upperclassmen and freshmen through its Theme Housing initiative.

What is Theme Housing?
Theme housing at Eastern brings together students with similar interests to live together within the same area of a residence hall. Theme housing serves as an additional opportunity for students to gain leadership, academic and social skills.
GENDER INCLUSIVE – This community will serve as a supportive and welcoming environment for students who have an interest in being as inclusive as possible as it pertains to gender identities and gender expression and would find comfort in living with others who have similar interests. Students within this community will have the option of receiving support from Campus Safe Space Allies as well as the Pride Center.
