"But It's Not the Space That I Would Need": Narrative of LGBTQ Students' Experiences in Campus Housing
Kortegast, Carrie A.
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v43 n2 p58-71 2017
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) student perceptions of their residence hall environments are influenced by interactions with peers, resident assistants, residential life administrators, and campus policies. Using the tradition of storytelling and drawing upon the experience of 11 LGBTQ participants, this article provides a narrative of LGBTQ students reflecting on their experiences living in campus housing and searching for welcoming and inclusive spaces. The article advocates for campus housing professionals to re-imagine policies and practices to promote opportunities for LGBTQ students to live, learn, and thrive. [Discussion questions developed by Diane Waryold and Pam Schreiber.]
