Gender Inclusive Housing
The Office of Community Living at Elizabethtown College is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment for all students, including students that identify as LGBT. The College offers gender inclusive housing options on campus in Founders residence hall including Stonewall Hall, a living learning community for LGBT students and Allies, and Gender inclusive housing for students interested in same-gender roommates, opposite-gender roommates, or other gender-identity roommate pairings, regardless of physical sex.
Any student, including incoming first year students, may opt to live on a gender inclusive housing floor and Stonewall Hall. Incoming students can opt onto one of these floors by indicating their preference on the housing profile. Upper-division students can opt onto one of these floors through the housing lottery process. No application or individual meetings are required in order to be placed on a gender inclusive housing floor.
More specific information about how to select a room on a gender inclusive housing floor can be found on the Office of Community Living webpage.
Stonewall Hall Living Learning Community
Stonewall Hall welcomes students of all gender identities and sexual orientations in an intentional living community. Stonewall Hall celebrates and affirms the cultural experiences of LGBT students and allies, while welcoming the diverse and complex identities of every resident.
Stonewall Hall programming reaches out to all residence hall students with cultural, educational, and social programming throughout the year. Students in Stonewall Hall had opportunities to regularly attend Allies club meetings, TAGGS events, Spectrum support group, and Queery discussion meetings. The floor lounge has served as a gathering space to talk about hot topics and have informal conversation. Stonewall residents have also taken a field trip to see Mary Lambert in Philadelphia, attended the campus Safe Zone training, co-hosted the Blue Light walk by holding the post-walk debrief, attended the GSA Summit at Dickinson College, and traveled to Penn State University to see Laverne Cox speak at an event.
