Room Selection and Housing Assignments

An Inclusive Community

The Office of Residential Life seeks to manage the room selection process in a manner that assures students receive housing assignments that are safe, respectful of personal dignity, and private and that further the core educational and community-building missions of our University. With these goals in mind, we will work on a case-by-case basis with individual residents to identify housing options and an assignment that aligns with their gender self-identity.

If you would like to discuss the process further and learn more about how to ensure that you will be able to live in a space appropriate to your identity, Tyler Martins, Assistant Director for Housing Operations at Rose Hill at tmartins@fordham.edu or by calling the Office of Residential Life at 718-817-3080.

We respect your privacy: you may also simply indicate in the housing application that you would like to further discuss your specific housing needs and preferences related to your gender identity. A member of our staff will reach out to you and speak with you individually about your needs and the options that are available.

Students should inquire about their options as early in the process as possible and while the widest range of options are available. This is a private process and information related to student gender identity is considered confidential and shared only with staff who need to assist with your request.
