Single-Gender Floors (Limited Spaces Available)

This is an option if you prefer to live in an all-women or all-men environment. Students of another gender are still welcome as visitors on these floors; however, they must use washrooms on another floor.

Single-gender floors are part of a mixed-gender house in a mixed-gender building. Spaces on single-gender floors are very limited and it may not be possible to accommodate all requests.

Single-gender floor assignments take precedence over your accommodation (building and room type) preferences.

2 Single Gender floors are available. One all-women floor and one all-men floor.
