Gender Neutral Housing

Gender Neutral Housing – Upperclass students
Gender neutral housing options are available in all upper class housing with the exception of Brown Hall which will remain female only. Gender neutral pairs/groups may select any room at lottery. Shared common hall bathrooms will continue to be gender segregated in East and Martin Luther Halls. Students living in those buildings will need to use the bathroom on their floor designated to the gender they identify with. The Office of Residential Services will continue the practice of reviewing bed space throughout the lottery process. During the general lottery, rooms or suites may be gender specified to ensure enough beds are available to everyone going through the lottery.

Gender Neutral Housing – First-Year and Transfer students
Gender neutral housing is available to first year students in Prosser and Walz Halls. Brown Hall is designated as female only. Shared common hall bathrooms will continue to be gender segregated in all buildings. Students will need to use the bathroom on their floor designated to the gender they identify with.

First-year and transfer students will be able to indicate that they are interested in gender-neutral housing by emailing resserv@muhlenberg.edu  Residential Services staff will work individually with these students.
