Rainbow Floor

Rainbow Floor

Rainbow Floor is a gender inclusive living-learning community committed to counterspace, education and activism around social justice for LGBQA and TGNC people. You can move onto the Rainbow Floor at anytime during the academic year. 

The Rainbow Floor is located in Dolan Hall.

The Office of Residential Life seeks to create a safer and more inclusive residential learning environment on campus by assisting students with requests to be matched with a roommate who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, or an ally.  An ally is defined as someone who identifies as straight and wants to be supportive of those who identify as LGBQIA and TGNC. We also understand that not everyone has the privilege to live on the floor, so we also offer admittance to Dolan for anyone that would like access for the Rainbow Floor and the lounge. If you are interested, please contact the Director of Residential Life.
