Helping students connect to resources is one of the best things you can do as an ally. UL Lafayette and the Acadiana community have several resources to offer.
The Office of University Housing and Residential Life offers Gender-Inclusive Housing options for all students upon request. Gender-Inclusive Housing refers to providing housing options for students according to their gender identity and preferences, regardless of their biological sex. This a an ideal option for Transgender and nonbinary students. Housing options are offered based on their availability and arrangements are made on a case-by case basis. Due to the variability of individual needs and preferences, as well as the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number, individuals interested in this option should complete their housing application as soon as possible, indicating their preference on the Housing Application portal.
