UC housing adds transgender policy

The University of Cincinnati is now not only willing to work with transgender and genderqueer students when it comes to housing, it is now explicitly stated on the UC Housing and Food Services’ FAQ page of its Web site:

Is there a transgender/genderqueer policy in the residence halls?
Traditionally students are placed with a roommate based on natal sex. Students with concerns about their placement should contact Housing and Food Services at (513) 556-6461 or UCHousing@uc.edu prior to receiving a housing assignment.

While the policy is very vague, GenderBloc — a radical queer student group focusing on transgender and genderqueer activism at UC — recommends new students preference Daniels Hall floors 11 and 12 when filling out the housing application. These floors provide the best accommodations for transgender and genderqueer people as they have single rooms, single-stall bathrooms and shower rooms with fewer stalls.
