BRANDEIS BRIEF: Reslife allows gender neutral housing

The Department of Residence Life announced in an e-mail to the student body last week that a new gender neutral housing policy will be put into effect for room selection in March.

Students living in rooms, suits and apartments on mixed-gender floors in sophomore, junior and senior areas will be able to choose whomever they want for their room and suit-mates, regardless of their genders.

Additionally, Residence Life announced that students will be able to select single rooms in four suits in Ziv Quad. This would allow students not going abroad to select housing regardless of whether or not they have people with whom to share the suit. The decision comes after the Village–the only dorm-style housing option for juniors and seniors-was set aside to house students in the fall of 2009 who plan on studying abroad in the spring of 2010.

Two-bedroom apartments in Charles River and 567 South Street have also been made available to be selected as single rooms
