It is important that students feel welcomed and supported at Big Bend Community College. The Residence Halls created a floor that is gender inclusive and hope that it is helpful to students of all spectrums of gender identity, biological sex, sexual identity, and gender expression.
Our Viking Hall 1st floor has been designated as our Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH). Students are welcome to join this floor. While gender-inclusive housing is open to any student, we ask that only students that agree to support this Program apply/be assigned to this floor. Requesting to live on the Gender Inclusive Floor is available on our housing application.
To ensure that our housing process is equitable and inclusive for all residents, once housing applications are completed ResLife staff will work to ensure that students are paired with suitable roommates. Students can still select their roommates but must confirm that they are not in a romantic relationship with their requested roommate. By confirming this we will ensure that all students can live in a safe, healthy, and supportive environment.
