The Implementation of Gender-Neutral Housing: A Mixed-Methods Study across ACUHO-I Member Institutions
Taub, Deborah J.; Johnson, R. Bradley; Reynolds, Torry
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v42 n2 p76-93 2016
Gender-neutral housing has recently become an option at colleges and universities across the U.S. Chief housing officers at Association of College and University Housing Officers-International member institutions were surveyed online about the status of gender-neutral housing at their respective campuses, using an instrument adapted by the researchers from the 1979 work of DeCoster on coeducational housing. Gender-neutral housing has been discussed or considered at most (approximately 85.6%) of the 306 responding campuses; only about 14.4% of responding institutions reported that they had not considered it at all. When obstacles were encountered, the most common were lack of suitable housing facilities, public relations concerns, lack of upper-level support, and lack of student interest. Existing gender-neutral housing policies at responding institutions were analyzed for themes.
