Gender Inclusive Housing
Mines is proud to offer Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) to all students residing in Elm Hall or the Apartments at Mines Park. Mines provides this option to first-year students living in Elm Hall along with upperclass (2nd-year students and above) along with graduate students living in the Mines Park community. A Student who wishes to live in a gender-inclusive room (a room that is not defined by the genders that reside within the same living space) will have the option to choose this as part of their housing application. You will be asked if you’d like to live in a gender-inclusive room, and at that time may opt into that opportunity. GIH is not intended for students to live with a romantic partner and we discourage this choice for anyone applying to live our residence halls. The Apartments at Mines Park provides family housing for students that desire to have a partner live with them while they are a student here at Mines.

- You would like to live with a family member or friend who does not identify as the same gender as you
- You identify as gender queer, transgender or a non-binary identity
- You have a medical need for an aid to live with you who may not identify as the same gender as you
