LGBTQ Community at New Paltz

Gender Inclusive Housing

Gender Inclusive Housing

The Office of Residence Life has designed various residency options on campus as gender inclusive. These residence options allow a student of any gender identity to live with another student of any gender identity. The inclusive housing options are in the majority of our residence halls. New entry transgender (or gender nonconforming) students seeking on-campus gender-neutral housing should contact the Office of Residence Life directly at 845-257-4444 to discuss options and needs.


LGBTQ+ Living Learning Community

In addition to our gender-inclusive housing, New Paltz also offers Rivera House: A LGBTQ+ Living-Learning Community.  Participants of this program will be housed together in the same area within a residence hall.  For more information, check out the Rivera House website.
