Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH)

Gender inclusive housing banner 

The Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) initiative was created with the explicit goal of helping Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Gender Variant students experience a greater sense of belonging in NAU’s residential communities. 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.

GIH will be located in physical environments that currently complement the goals of the initiative. The purpose of GIH is to provide a more comfortable, safer 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.
