Jack-and-Jill style rooms are found in Cedar Hall, Lewis Hall, and some Ponce Hall rooms.
They are designed so that two or three roommates share a bathroom with two or three suitemates. Bathrooms typically have one shower and one toilet (Cedar Hall), but some may have two sinks (Lewis Hall), or multiple toilets/showers depending on the number of residents sharing a bathroom (Ponce Hall).
In private rooms, two residents share a private bathroom and shower.
Suite-Style rooms are found in Abare Hall.
They allow three to four residents to live together in one suite with a private bathroom and shower for all. They are designed so that one resident has a private bedroom while the other two share.
What is Gender-Inclusive Housing?
Gender Inclusive Housing aims to create an environment where a resident is not restricted to the traditional limitations set out by the gender binary (male/female).
Instead, it allows the Office of Residence Life to work based on the understanding that more than two genders exist or that one does not have a gender.
The Office of Residence Life is committed to establishing an inclusive and diverse environment where residents can thrive without the fear of hiding an identity. This means that Gender Inclusive Housing grants the opportunity for residents from all gender identities and expressions to live together if they choose.
Is Gender-Inclusive Housing Just for LGBTQIA2S+ Residents?
It is a common myth and stereotype that just members of the LGBTQIA2S+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Ally, 2-Spirited, and more) community are those that request Gender Inclusive Housing.
In fact, Gender Inclusive Housing is available and provided for residents throughout the entirety of the sexuality spectrum. It allows for any resident to live with people with whom they feel comfortable regardless of gender or lack of gender.
Residents who select Gender Inclusive Housing must be comfortable and open to living with anyone regardless of gender or lack of gender. There are various reasons why a resident may choose to live in Gender Inclusive Housing, and being a member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community is not always an identity they may carry.
Who Can Select Gender-Inclusive Housing?
Gender Inclusive Housing is available for all residents of Flagler College who are comfortable living with other residents who may have a different gender from them or may not have a gender.
Who Lives in Gender-Inclusive Housing?
Only those residents who fill out the Gender Inclusive Housing Application will be permitted to live in Gender Inclusive Housing. Room changes will not occur in those spaces unless both (or more) parties fill out the Gender Inclusive Housing Application.
What if My Parent or Guardian Doesn't Want Me To Live In Gender-Inclusive Housing?
The Office of Residence Life encourages all residents to make critical decisions about their future, prioritizing their own mental and physical health as a priority.
While we understand that family members and their inputs play a large role in our decision-making, we also understand that sometimes our decisions do not always align with those factors as well. The decision to live in Gender-Inclusive Housing is the resident's.
Is Gender-Inclusive Housing for Romantic or Domestic Partners?
No, Gender Inclusive Housing is not designed to be a space for romantic or domestic partners. The housing is designed to support residents throughout the entirety of the gender spectrum, and lack of gender, so that they have space.
