Gender Neutral Housing
Residence life is committed to providing residents with safe, clean, well maintained, and comfortable housing while also demonstrating a commitment to diversity within all department initiatives, policies and services.
Gender neutral housing is a living environment within a residence hall where student housing is not limited to one gender. The purpose of gender neutral housing is to provide a safe and comfortable living space for both individuals who identify as transgender as well as their allies. Gender neutral housing provides options for students in the process of discovering their gender identity and helps create an environment that acknowledges, appreciates and respects the diverse nature of the student body at Salem State University.
First Year and Sophomore Housing
First year students living in Bowditch or Peabody Halls, and sophomores assigned to Marsh Hall, who are interested in gender neutral housing should contact residence life, housing operations to discuss housing options.
Junior and Senior Housing
Junior and senior students are assigned to Atlantic Hall on Central Campus or the Bates Complex on South Campus. Both buildings consist of six-person apartments, with double and single rooms. While apartments designated as gender neutral are not limited to one gender, all bedrooms within the apartment will remain biological sex-specific by bedroom. Students interested in gender neutral housing should contact residence life, housing operations to discuss housing options.
