Grinnell's College Offers Gender-Neutral Housing Options

Written by 

Grinnell's College, Iowa decided to propose dormitory room, bathroom, shower room or locker room without gender becoming the first of the state.

In what the National Student Genderblind Campaign calls a "rapidly growing collegiate movement," at least 54 colleges and universities across the country, many of them private, provide gender-neutral housing options this year as reports USAtoday.

"Each year we hear about more campuses adding that as an option," said James Baumann, spokesman for the Association of College and University Housing Officers — International. "I think the changes are a reflection of changing times."
