Please note that if you indicated your interest in gender inclusive housing when filling out your housing contract, that does not mean you have selected gender inclusive housing. You must opt into gender inclusive housing through myUSI, or you will not be eligible.
Do you have a roommate group and want to opt into gender inclusive housing? If you are in a roommate group and choose the gender inclusive option, all members in your roommate group must opt into the gender inclusive housing option as well. Students will not be randomly assigned to gender inclusive housing. Gender inclusive housing is optional, and students must choose a gender inclusive space during room selection.
