Mixed-Gender Housing

Mixed-gender housing allows for students to live with their ideal roommate regardless of sex, gender, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation. This allows for increased choice in selecting and choosing their ideal roommate and contributes to an inclusive community for the residents.

Why does Conestoga College Residence offer mixed-gender housing?

The Conestoga College Residence is offering mixed-gender housing to acknowledge the diverse needs of the residence community, which cannot be met with traditional gender-based housing.

How do I participate in mixed-gender housing?

Students will be able to participate in mixed-gender housing through the My Housing Portal. When the roommate portion of the My Housing Portal becomes available, students will proceed through the step called ‘Housing Option’. If you wish to participate in mixed-gender housing, you will select ‘Mixed-Gender Housing’ from the drop-down menu in the My Housing Portal.

Note: You must make your residence fee payment in order to be moved through the roommate section of the portal.

What if I do not want to room with a co-ed roommate? 

Mixed-gender housing is a voluntary process. Students interested in this option will be able to self select ‘Mixed-Gender Housing’ through the My Housing Portal. When the roommate portion of the My Housing Portal becomes available, students will proceed through the steps called ‘Housing Options’. If you do not want to participate in mixed-gender housing, you can select ‘Single-Gender Housing’ from the drop-down menu in the My Housing Portal.

Note: If you do not wish to participate in the roommate section of the My Housing Portal, you will be manually matched by the Residence.
