Gender Inclusive Housing

The University of Maine at Presque Isle is committed to providing a safe, accepting, and inclusive experience for all students. UMPI has a nondiscrimination policy that includes gender identity and/or expression. This policy extends to student housing. As such, the Housing and Residence Life Department is proud to offer Gender-Inclusive Housing (GIH) options. These living options provide an on-campus residence experience that welcomes students across all gender identities and/or expressions, including transgender, questioning, gender nonconforming, or ally students. All residential students, regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation have the option of requesting a gender-inclusive room on the housing application. Note: GIH Housing is different from co-gendered housing. Co-gendered housing applies to spaces where any combination of genders may live within a room, however, there may not be access to a gender-neutral bathroom option on that particular floor. GIH housing will always include gender neutral bathroom access.

The GIH options are available on the 1st floor of Emerson Hall, Park Hall, and Merriman Hall. Residence Life does not use gender as a criteria in the assignment process. All students assigned to the GIH community will live with others who have requested this living accommodation. We will work with these students to ensure that roommate assignments and placements meet their needs. The Housing and Residence Life Department encourages students who may require additional GIH accommodations to contact us at 207-768-9687 or via email at

GIH requests are accommodated based on availability, however, we are committed to meeting the needs of every student to the best of our ability. Students can request by phone or email to be placed on the GIH waitlist in the event they are not initially assigned to a GIH option.  Waitlist requests are only accepted by the Housing and Residence Life Department after the student has confirmed their original housing contract assignment. This waitlist will be active during the entire academic year, including the summer months leading to fall move-in. Students on the waitlist will be notified by their UMPI email if a space has become available with an invitation to accept and modify their current assignment and assigned a deadline to respond. Roommate requests may not be accommodated and/or guaranteed if placed on the waitlist.
