Both universities decided that next fall, they will allow students to room with someone of the opposite sex. The policies were changed with LGBT students in mind, but will also help other students who want to live with their friends of different genders.
Syracuse will offer seventy-four two-bedroom suites for students that don’t feel comfortable entering the housing lottery with roommates of the same gender. They will also be giving training for potential mixed gender pairings for conflicts that are nonexistent with same gender housing.
Princeton will be allowing Spelman Hall, a residence hall featuring apartment-style suites, to offer gender-neutral housing.
