It is important that housing practices evolve to meet the needs of students and create an inclusive, welcoming environment. Gender inclusive housing has been available since the 2012-13 academic year. According to Campus Pride, Kenyon is one of 265 schools nationwide, and one of 15 Ohio schools, that provide gender inclusive housing options for students.
