Is gender-neutral housing coming to Princeton?

Gender-neutral housing is coming to Princeton.

That's the news Emily Rutherford '12 posted on her blog at earlier this morning.

Though the Graduate School launched a pilot program in the 2008-09 school year that introduced gender-neutral housing for graduate students, a similar option does not exist for undergraduates.

The Undergraduate Life Committee approved a plan two weeks ago, and the council of residential college masters endorsed the proposal during a meeting on Tuesday, Rutherford wrote.

The pilot program would designate apartment-style Spelman Hall as gender-neutral. Rutherford wrote that there will no longer be the requirement that draw groups must have four students of the same gender.

The program is not expected to affect any other dorms during its first year.

Stay tuned for more coverage from the 'Prince.'
