Abstract: GENDER-INCLUSIVE HOUSING (GIH) continues to grow as an option for consideration atcolleges and universities across the U.S. A follow-up to a 2016 study by Taub and colleagues wasconducted to gauge and assess developmental growth trends of GIH within campus housing. Amajority of 184 participants (n = 129) reported that their institution has either implemented a fullor trial GIH program, while another quarter (n = 48) reported being in the discussion stage. Onlysix respondents reported not having considered GIH at all in their housing procedures. These datashow that, compared to the conclusions of previous studies, a more pronounced movement towardimplementation of GIH is occurring beyond the stage of simple discussions. The most commonobstacles that institutions reported about the implementation of GIH were parent/family concerns,public relations concerns, and lack of suitable housing facilities. Similar to the 2016 study by Tauband colleagues, current policies related to gender-inclusive housing at participating institutionswere further analyzed.
