Adelphi offers a variety of residential communities for specific interests.

Students may choose from a variety of residential options in our seven residence halls on the Garden City campus, including several available room types and special residential communities. Adelphi also attempts to provide special accommodations to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Please note that the cost of housing depends on the room type and/or community selected.

Students may request a specific housing assignment based on their interests, academic needs or other aspects of their identity. Students should indicate their choices on the Residence Hall Agreement. Assignments are based on room availability, and some frequently asked questions specific to these communities are included below. Please visit our main FAQ page for more information regarding residential life as a whole.

First-Year Living-Learning Communities

Gender Inclusive Housing

 

Gender Inclusive Housing—which is now available in Chapman Hall, Waldo Hall and Residence Hall B—refers to rooms where people of any sex or gender identity can live together. This housing option helps create an environment that acknowledges, respects, and appreciates the diversity of our student body. Students may choose to live in Gender Inclusive Housing because they identify as transgender, they do not wish to be identified by any sex or gender identity, or they prefer to live with a roommate of a different sex or gender identity. Like all other on-campus housing options at Adelphi University, students are discouraged from living with their current partner regardless of sexual orientation.

Applications for Fall 2020 are due by Wednesday, April 15 at 4:30 p.m.

Gender Inclusive Housing requires that you submit a Gender Inclusive Housing Policy Agreement and Roommate Preference Form.

Gender Inclusive Housing is open to students in their second year or above. First-year students may apply for an exception and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

No. This option can benefit any individual since a student has the ability to choose or be assigned a roommate with whom they would feel most comfortable.

Gender Inclusive Housing is available in Chapman Hall, Residence Hall A, Residence Hall B, and Waldo Hall. Chapman Hall and Waldo Hall have a single-stall all-gender-restroom with a private shower. Rooms in Residence Hall B have semi-private single-stall bathrooms with a shower that is only shared among roommates. View the cost of housing for rooms in Chapman Hall, Residence Hall B, and Waldo Hall

To apply for Gender Inclusive Housing, students must check off the Gender Inclusive Housing box located under the Special Housing Request section on the Residence Hall Agreement and pay the standard $300 housing deposit. Additionally, interested students must fill out the Gender Inclusive Housing Policy Agreement form.

Unfortunately, like other specific housing options, there are a limited number of spaces available. If more students apply for gender-inclusive rooms than there is available space, then students who are not able to select a room will be placed on a Gender Inclusive Housing waitlist.

Once you and your requested roommates have completed the Gender Inclusive Housing Policy Agreement form, the Housing team will be in contact regarding your assignments.

Whenever possible, we prefer that students identify who they want to live with. If a student cannot fill a room, the Office of Residential Life and Housing will work with individuals to find a roommate. Once we know all students who are interested in Gender Inclusive Housing, we will coordinate roommates that will allow for a comfortable living situation for all.

While the Office of Residential Life and Housing will not restrict the students with whom you live, we discourage students who are in an intimate relationship, regardless of sexual orientation, from living together.

The Office of Residential Life and Housing will work with any students who feel uncomfortable in their living situation. All roommate conflicts will be treated equally and options will be provided to ensure that all students are comfortable in their living situation.
