Flex housing

Flexible Housing (or just “Flex Housing”) seeks to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities, not one limited by the traditional gender binary. Flex Housing allows for students of any gender/non-gender to live together in University Housing accommodations in a platonic environment in which they feel safe and supported, regardless of gender identity or sex assigned at birth.

As of 2019, more than 200 colleges and universities around the nation offer some form of gender-inclusive housing for their residential students, and NKU is proud to be part of this group. There are numerous reasons why a student would need or want to live in a more gender-inclusive housing assignment, and Flex Housing gives our students the opportunity to select their roommates/suitemates without restrictions based on gender identity or sex assigned at birth. Pursuing this initiative has been a recommendation LGBTQ+ Programs & Services, Residence Hall Association, Student Government Association, and many other student organizations at NKU. Flex Housing also contributes to Success by Design, the university’s strategic plan for 2019-2022, by providing a sense of belonging for all students.

If you’re interested in applying for Flex Housing, please read the Flex Housing Procedures, Terms & Conditions to get started. If you have any questions, you may contact Brittany Jackson, Associate Director of Residence Life, at jacksonb14@nku.edu.
