Students laughing in their residence hall

As a supportive and caring community, Curry College continues to make strides in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging by welcoming students of all backgrounds and experiences.

As part of this commitment, the College is proud to offer gender-inclusive housing to all of our undergraduate students. Gender-inclusive housing is an on campus living option in which two or more students may share a multiple-occupancy bedroom, in mutual agreement, regardless of the students’ sex or gender.

We know that students thrive when they feel a true sense of community and belonging. Gender-inclusive residence life will contribute to the growth and personal development of our students by providing a more welcoming and supportive environment for students of all gender identities. This new program represents Curry College's commitment to gender diversity as an important aspect of our campus community as we continue to strive towards building a more just and equitable learning environment that creates spaces for belonging in the ways that our students require.

What if someone who is placed in gender-inclusive housing no longer wishes to be?

Any student who wishes to no longer occupy the space they are in will go through the standard room change process, this includes but is not limited to gender inclusive and themed housing.
