Hobart and William Smith Colleges recognize the importance of providing housing options that meet the needs of our diverse population. Our current housing system provides options that allow students to live with other students of any gender in apartment and/or suite style facilities. In addition, many of our residence halls provide co-educational living environments where students of all genders reside on the same floor.

In cases when our current housing options do not meet the needs of an individual student, the Office
of Residential Education will work with the student
to identify potential alternatives. Students who identify as transgender and prefer a special housing accommodation may request such an accommodation by contacting Residential Education.
