Abstract: Numerous scholars (Bowen & Bourgeois, 2001; Nadal, 2013; Platt & Lenzen, 2013; Rankin, Weber, Blumenfeld, & Frazer, 2010; Wright & Wegner, 2012) examined issues that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or queer (LGBT) individuals experience while in college and when living on campus. For college students, Rankin et al. (2010) reported that “the climate was ‘least accepting’ of individuals identifying as LGBT” (p. 30), and historically residence halls provided safe and influential spaces for LGBTQ+ students (Evans & Broido, 1999; Longerbeam, Inkelas, Johnson, & Lee, 2007). However, other scholars (Harwood, Huntt, Mendenhall, & Lewis, 2012; Schroeder & Jackson, 1987) examined the negative impacts of residence hall living on minoritized or marginalized students.
