Trans-inclusive housing

Trans-inclusive Housing

Trans-inclusive Housing areas are intended to create safer and supportive spaces to live for transgender and gender-nonconforming students, and their allies. Students may room together regardless of gender or legal gender. Please note that this room assignment is likely to be on a mixed-gender floor/apartment and all students share common areas (e.g. bathrooms). Students who do not request a roommate(s) on their housing application will be assigned a roommate(s) based on preferences expressed in the housing application and a follow-up conversation with a housing staff member, if necessary. Only students who indicate an interest will be assigned to Trans-inclusive Housing (supplemental application required).

Trans-inclusive Housing for first-year students will be located in the Merrill College residence halls. First-year students need not be academically affiliated with Merrill in order to apply for and live within this community.

Trans-inclusive Housing for continuing students and transfer students will be located at Redwood Grove. These apartments are available to students of any college affiliation.

Brian Arao, College Administrative Officer, serves as the housing liaison for trans-identified students and can assist you with any questions or concerns you may have about which on-campus housing option (including but not limited to trans-inclusive housing) may best align with your needs. Brian can be reached at (831) 459-2550 or barao@ucsc.edu.
