YouSpeak: Gender-Neutral Housing
Is the Student Government proposal a good idea? Or not?
A proposal crafted by BU’s Student Government would give upperclassmen the option of living in gender-neutral housing, with men and women able to share rooms in campus residence halls.
The Student Government plan calls for a five-year rollout. Year one would see 20 gender-neutral rooms in both StuVi1 and StuVi2, and some in residence halls on South Campus. More rooms and buildings would be added each year, with a goal of making gender-neutral housing available everywhere on campus by the fifth year. Students would apply for the option, and resident assistants would receive training to deal with issues that might arise.
This week’s “YouSpeak” asks: “How do you feel about gender-neutral housing?”
“YouSpeak” typically appears each Monday.
