COLUMBIA, Mo. — The University of Missouri, Columbia will offer a new gender-neutral housing option starting this fall.
According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, the 16-bed space in College Avenue Hall will be open to students of any gender with the goal of providing a safe, secure housing option for transgender of gender nonconforming students. 
Last year, the University of Missouri System's Board of Curators added gender expression and gender identity to its nondiscrimination policy.
“When we say that this is important to our institutions, it’s great, but it makes it clear when we’re following through with programs and resources that promote inclusiveness and a welcoming environment,” Frankie Minor, director of Residential Life at MU, told the Tribune
