Gender Inclusive Housing
Colorado School of Mines is proud to offer Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) as a residency option. Gender Inclusive Housing is currently offered to first-year students on the 4th floor of Elm Hall and for returning and graduate students residing at Mines Park Apartments.
A student who wishes to live in a gender-inclusive room (a room that is not defined by the genders that reside within the same living space) will have the option to choose this as part of their housing application. You will be asked if you’d like to live in a gender-inclusive room, and at that time may opt into the opportunity.
GIH is not intended for students to live with a romantic partner and we discourage this choice for anyone applying to live our residence halls. The Apartments at Mines Park provides family housing for students that desire to have a partner live with them while they are a student here at Mines.
You might consider choosing Gender Inclusive Housing if…
- You feel more comfortable living with someone who does not identify as the same gender as you
- You would like to live with a family member or friend who does not identify as the same gender as you
- You identify as gender queer, transgender or a nonbinary identity
- You have a medical need for an aide to live with you who may not identify as the same gender as you
