Gender Inclusive Housing

Teachers College provides multiple housing options for students to meet the diverse needs of our students. We provide safe and supportive housing for students of all sexes, gender identities and gender expressions, including transgender and gender non-conforming students. All of our housing options include single occupancy bedrooms.

Beginning June 2017, our office will be converting the singles on the 4th floor of Whittier to gender inclusive singles. This means that individuals can reside in these spaces regardless of their gender; therefore these units will no longer be single sex. This decision is designed to create a more inclusive environment for students of all gender identities. The singles on the Gender Inclusive Floor will supplement the more private accommodations (private bath and/or kitchens) already available in Bancroft, NewRes, and Whittier Halls.

We encourage students with questions about our housing options to contact our office at or the Office of Vice President for Diversity and Community Affairs at 212-678-8410.
