In gender-inclusive housing, USC students can live with roommates regardless of gender identity or biological sex. Traditional housing options that match roommates based on biological sex can prove unsafe and unwelcoming, particularly for LGBTQ+ individuals. The gender-inclusive housing option allows students to live in a safe and supportive environment.

Gender-inclusive apartment style housing spaces are located in  Cardinal Gardens, Cowlings and Ilium Residential College and Century (Rainbow Floor).  The gender-inclusive option is also available to freshmen in Birnkrant.

If you are interested in living in Gender-Inclusive Housing please indicate this on the online application.  When applying, you will be asked to answer additional questions about your interest in the community.

For additional information please consult the Gender-Inclusive Housing FAQ.
