NYU Tel Aviv Gender Inclusive Housing

To be more closely aligned with the student housing assignment process on NYU’s New York campus, NYU Tel Aviv is going to introduce gender inclusive housing for spring 2017 semester.

Gender inclusive housing allows residents to be assigned to rooms, regardless of legal sex. To select gender inclusive housing you must complete the online form by November 25th.

Key Components of Gender Inclusive Housing

Legal sex will not be considered when making roommate assignments for students who indicate they want “gender inclusive” housing.

You can indicate that you prefer gender inclusive housing through the housing preference addendum form. Please submit this form to opt into gender inclusive housing by November 25th.

By selecting this preference, you commit to living in a bedroom occupied by another student who also prefers gender inclusive housing, regardless of their legal sex. This means that the student living within your immediate bedroom can be of any legal sex and may or may not identify as the gender that is not their legal sex. Applicants who select the gender inclusive preference should therefore be willing to live with any other student who is participating in gender inclusive housing.

Should a vacancy arise within a gender inclusive room this space will be filled by any applicant that has a gender inclusive preference. In the event a gender inclusive room cannot be filled with a student who has elected to participate in gender inclusive housing, NYU Tel Aviv will assign a new resident to the room based on legal sex.

Participants who change their mind about gender inclusive living can submit a request to change their preference from gender inclusive to their legal sex, with the understanding that our ability to accommodate requests for such changes are contingent upon space availability and timing of the submitted request.  Please keep in mind that we typically operate at full capacity in the spring semester, often making it difficult to change one’s assignment.
