University of South Florida Offers Dorm Options For Transgender Students

Transgender Students of The University of South Florida will have the option to live alone, live with a friend, or be assigned a random roommate.

The Associated Press reports:

The University of South Florida is offering transgender students the opportunity to live alone or with a friend of a different gender in campus housing.

Beginning Thursday, students can identify themselves as male, female or transitioning on their housing applications. Anyone who checks transitioning can live alone, with a friend or with a randomly assigned roommate. A student’s choice of transitioning won’t be disclosed to any randomly selected roommate without permission.

Then, in the spring, the Tampa school will begin a pilot program with several “gender-neutral” dorm rooms for any student who wants to live with another student of a different gender. Rooming with romantic partners will be discouraged.
