Gender-Inclusive Housing

Brandeis University is committed to providing safe and supportive housing options for students of all genders. This includes providing options that offer gender-inclusive housing and restrooms. For details, please consult Brandeis' Department of Community Living Gender Inclusive Housing Policy

All-Gender Restrooms

All Brandeis residence halls are equipped with at least one single-user, gender-inclusive restroom. An additional 30 such facilities, in addition to a handful of single-user, gendered restrooms with locking mechanisms, can be found in university academic and administration buildings throughout campus.
