UNC Charlotte could approve gender-neutral housing this week



UNC Charlotte's student government association could decide on Thursday whether the campus will have gender-neutral housing.


According to the Charlotte Observer, the association will meet to discuss and possibly vote on legislation that would approve of the housing option. It would join other universities, including UNC Chapel Hill, if it confirms the choice, a huge victory for transgender students and others who may not feel comfortable living in gender-specific dormitories.

The Obsever spoke with Shayne Windmeyer, founder of Campus Pride:

"This is all about campus safety. That should be the number-one concern of every campus - to make sure every student has the ability to go to classes, get good grades and then go home to their residence hall and feel safe and secure and welcome."
