Open Housing

An Inclusive Option

Housing & Residence Life offers an inclusive housing option known as "open housing" to students who wish to request roommates regardless of their sex or gender identity.

This option was first piloted during the 2015-2016 academic year and has since expanded to all upperclass apartment areas (Bice, Copeley, Faulkner, and Lambeth). Requests for open housing in other residence areas can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis.

To learn more about the open housing option, contact housingassignments@virginia.edu. Please note that to participate, your housing application must be received by the appropriate deadline, and all roommates and/or apartment-mates must mutually agree to the open housing assignment. Also, please keep in mind that the open housing option is not recommended for dating partners.
