Gender-Inclusive Housing

Students living on campus have the option to reside in gender-inclusive housing. Housing and Residence Life recognizes that traditional same-gender room assignments may not be appropriate for all students. Gender-inclusive housing provides an environment that welcomes students of all genders and identities. More information can be found here.

Gender-Neutral Restrooms

The USI Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Council supports the Gender-Neutral Restroom Initiative targeting the need for gender-neutral restrooms throughout our campus. As of right now, a gender-neutral bathroom can be found at the Recreation Fitness and Wellness Center.

Counseling and Psychological Services 

USI's Counseling and Psychological Services offers free counseling services and resources to students. For more information or to make an appointment, click here
