For the first time, students of the opposite sex at the University at Buffalo will be able to live together in on-campus housing. UB Campus Living will introduce gender-neutral housing into student campus residence halls and apartments in the fall.
The new program will set aside two floors in Ellicott Complex on the North Campus as gender neutral, in addition to several apartments in Hadley Village and Creekside Village, also on the North Campus. The designated housing will be available to all UB students, including incoming freshmen.
Unlike traditional housing which separates students by sex, gender-neutral housing will allow male and female students to live within the same resident halls and campus apartments. UB is the only university in Erie County to implement this housing option, though many colleges and universities throughout the U.S. have offered gender-neutral housing for several years.
