Mixed, Single Gender Living, & Gender Inclusive Housing

Residence hall floors are designed for co-ed living and if you are interested in a floor that is single sex, you may request that through the housing application, but it is not guaranteed. Bentley University is committed to creating an affirming community for our transgender, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming students.  The Residential Center will work with students to find a housing situation that is affirming and will support each student’s academic growth. If you would like to speak with someone contact Kathryn Keyes, Associate Director of the Residential Center at kkeyes@bentley.edu.  

Medical Accommodations

Bentley residents with a medical condition, one which requires a specific style of housing, can petition the Residential Center to obtain a relevant accommodation in housing for the 2017 – 2018 academic year.  The petition process for Medical Housing is a pre-selection process, with all approved applicants securing an appropriate assignment before the regular 2017 – 2018 Housing Selection Process begins. In order to be considered for a medical petition will need to submit all appropriate documents prior to June 22nd, 2017. Further information regarding the documents required and who to contact can be found here: Housing and Meal Plan Medical Accomodation
