All Gender Housing


All Gender Housing at Portland State University is intended to provide comfortable living options for students who are interested in living with others regardless of their gender. All Gender Housing is a roommate matching option wherein any two students can share a unit (i.e., residence hall room, apartment) regardless of gender. 

The Housing Contract asks students for information about their gender. UHRL collects data about gender independently of PSU, as UHRL is not eligible to receive gender information from PSU. Updating your gender with PSU will not update it with UHRL, and you will need to contact UHRL directly.  More information about Sex, Gender and Sexual Orientation Data Collection at PSU can be found on the Office of the Registrar website.

Roommates are generally matched by gender at PSU. In the Housing Contract, students can opt for a roommate of a different gender, or indicate they are an Ally who is open to living with students of a different gender.
