Do you want to live with a group of awesome, inclusive queer and transgender students and form a tight-knit community during your first and second year of college? Join Lavender House! Lavender House is open to any students who identify with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, queer, Two Spirit, intersex, and asexual (or LGBTQIA+) community.

Students in this Living Learning Community are able to explore and express their whole selves, including their gender identities, expressions, and sexuality in a safe and affirming environment. There are two communities: a first-year and second-year community! They will have distinct living spaces on two floors of Comstock Hall and have differing required activities throughout the year.

Each community will explore identity, leadership, and develop a deeper sense of community. These communities include both single and double room options, and students have access to designated gender-neutral bathroom facilities.

With the support of the Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life (GSC), Lavender House students will connect with queer communities on and off-campus, attend cultural events, and participate in a leadership retreat. 


Open to all residents, including first-year, returning, and transfer students.
