Rutgers pilots ‘gender-neutral’ dorm rooms

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (USANN4)– Rutgers University is implementing gender-neutral housing in an effort to make the school more inclusive.   The decision by the New Jersey institution comes after the high-profile suicide of one of its students.   During the next school year, 20 to 30 students will participate in a pilot program.

The program will allow students to choose their roommates regardless of gender.   Three dormitories will be part of the pilot program.   Students must apply to live in the gender-neutral rooms, which will be reserved for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
