As part of our campus-wide commitment to providing genuinely safe and inclusive residential communities that aren’t limited by the traditional understanding of gender, Babson has several gender-inclusive housing options. This allows students to share a multiple-occupancy room or suite, regardless of their sex or gender.
Currently, this option is available in three upper-class residence halls, as well as within The LGBTQ+ Neighborhood. Female-only housing also is available. If you are an incoming student and want to learn more about gender-inclusive housing options please contact email@example.com.
The LGBTQ+ Neighborhood
Designed to provide a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment to LGBTQ+ students and their allies, the Neighborhood houses community members in a cluster of rooms in the same hallway with access to a gender-inclusive bathroom. The community is unique among residence halls, in that you can develop community and connections across class years.
All students in the Neighborhood participate in a gender- and sexuality-focused retreat at the start of the fall semester. Throughout the year, Residence Education professional and student staff support the community in relationship building, programs, and community-building activities, all focused on maintaining a safe and healthy living environment.
